Nebraska is called the cornhusker state. This is one of America’s most important agricultural states. It excels at production of cattle, corn, pigs, sorghum and wheat. Like Kansas, the vast fields of Nebraska feed millions of people all over the world. Nebraska is also at the forefront of supplies for the making of bio-fuels.
The capital city of this great state is in Lincoln. The largest city in the state is Omaha, which was one of the first cities in the state. This is because Omaha is situation on the banks of the Missouri River. More than one hundred years ago, fur trappers stopped in Omaha for supplies on their way to the Rocky Mountains, which are located far to the west. On their return the trappers sold their furs, making Omaha a rich and important city.
Nebraskan citizens are rabid football fans. The University of Nebraska is a perennial college champion, which is followed by almost everyone in the state. Every University of Nebraska home game has been sold out for the last ten years, with more than 85,000 people in attendance.
The people of Nebraska are typically religious, conservative people. Other than their work they spend most of their time devoted to their families. A large portion of Nebraskan residents have roots that come from Germany. This means that just as in Germany, they love to party and celebrate hard, whenever they have a good reason. Harvest time is traditionally the biggest festival time of the year.
