Nicknamed the Keystone State, Pennsylvania has a long, rich history that has been a major force in shaping America through the centuries. It is one of the 13 original United States, and two famous locations in the state - Valley Forge and Gettysburg - were key to the Revolutionary War and Civil War, respectively. Whether it is the blunt attitude of Philadelphians, the hard-work ethic that survived the end of Pittsburgh steel, or the bucolic countryside still influenced by their Dutch past and Amish culture, Pennsylvania has a character all its own.
