I precede each state by the date it entered the United States of America. Because E2 does not like tables, I have omitted the other data usually contained in this type of list, namely the year the location was first "settled" by Europeans (not counting Vikings, of course) and the number of Representatives (which would go out of date in ten years anyway).
