America~NORTH DAKOTA~by rldubour


 

 

NORTH DAKOTA

The origin of the name Dakota is
Derived from a Sioux term meaning allies.
The motto~~ Liberty and union now and
Forever, one and inseparable,~~ still applies.

The official state song written by James W.
Foley is the~~ North Dakota Hymn.
This state referred to as~~ The Peace Garden State
Residents areNorth Dakotans another patronym.

In 1947 a bill was defeated in an attempt
To drop north from the state.
And in 1987 they passed a bill making
English the official language with no debate.

The state is the origin of The First U.S.
Volunteer Cavalry known as the Roughriders.
And the piles of rock on White Bluff is a
Monument dedicated to the sheepherders.

Des Mores State Historic Site memorialized the
Life and activities of Antoine de Vallombrosa.
And The Lewis and Clark expedition ran into
It’s first Grizzly Bear inNorth Dakota.

Miniwauken a Sioux word translated incorrectly
Creelsburg to Creel City then finally Devils Lake.
Sitting Bull Historic Burial Site is actually
A Hunkpap Sioux leader another big mistake.

The DinosaurMuseumin Dickinson has two
Complete Triceratops and Edmontosaurus.
And Petroglyphs are found on two granite
Rocks near Grenora all this found before us.

The Big Hidasta Village has better defined earth
Lodge depressions than any Native American site.
And the International Peace Garden has 2,300-acres
Of over 100,000 flowering plants much to ones delight.

Richardton is home to Abbey Church a
Romanesque structure with impressive interior.
And The Lone Tree Wildlife Management Area
Consists of 33,000 acres and nothing is inferior.

 

This marks the time of famous names
To be listed before we’re done.
Like Glass, Bodine, Purpur and L’Amour
Sitting Bull, Peggy Lee and Angie Dickinson.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Statehood, November 2, 1889 the 39th state.
The capital isBismarck.

 

AUTHOR NOTES:
The site was surveyed in 1882 and named Creelsburg (later Creel City) for its surveyor, Heber M. Creel; in 1884 it was renamed Devils Lake, a misinterpretation of the Sioux name Miniwaukan, meaning Spirit Water, Lake Great One, or Lake
Holy One. The North Dakota State University research experiment station is in Hettinger.
Dakota Gasification Co. in Beulah is the only synthetic natural gas producer.
In Bismarck a statue of Sakakawea and her baby Baptiste stand at the entrance.12ft bronze
State Bird: Western Meadowlark, State Flower: Wild Rose, State Tree: American elm.
The Big Hidasta Village has the best-defined earth lodge depressions of any major Native American site found in the Great Plains.  Of the 50 states North Dakota is 17th in size when measuring land range.
Fort Union trading post was the principal trading post from 1827 to 1867.
A flowering monument to peace is the International Peace Garden, straddling the border between the United States and Canada. Near Dunseith, this 2,300-acre garden plants 100,000 flowers annually and features a Peace Chapel as well as an 18-foot floral clock.
Richardton is home to the Abbey Church a Barvarian Romanesque structure. Lofty arches, 52 stained glass windows, 24 paintings of Saints on canvas above the arches, and a huge carved crucifix delineate the impressive interior. The Lone Tree Wildlife Management Area located southwest of Harvey consists of 33,000 acres of gently rolling hills bordering the Sheyenne River. (click on International Peace garden)
