阿肯色州(Arkansas

又稱「自然之州」的阿肯色州,州如其名,州內充滿了巒山、峽谷、茂密的森林以及肥沃的淨土。廣闊清澈的湖泊與涓涓細流以及野生動物遍佈,每年吸引了許多愛好自然美景的遊客前來,成為本週最重要的觀光資產。

阿克色州於1836年正式成為美國的一州。

本州的州名曾有過一有趣的歷史,對於阿肯色州的州名在建州之初曾有兩方人馬對此有不同的見解。一派人認為阿肯色州應該拼為 “Arkansaw” 然而另外一派則希望使用 “Arkansas” 兩派人馬爭執不休,而為了平息紛爭,州會則決定通過第四號議案,決定州名應該拼做 “Arkansas”,但是發音方式則是使用 “Arkansaw”的發音法。此法案在1947年曾稍做修改,並將州名的發音方式列入官方立法之中。

過去阿肯色州主要經濟作為棉花業,而今除了棉花外也有稻作和大豆的種植。世界知名的連鎖大型超市沃爾瑪便是來自阿肯色州。

Arkansas, officially "The Natural State", is a state of mountains, valleys, dense woodland and fertile plains. Its clear lakes and streams and abundant wildlife help to make tourism one of the state's most important industries.

Arkansas became a state on June 15, 1836.

There is an interesting story about the spelling and pronunciation of the name of the state. In the early days, a couple of U.S. Senators had disagreement on the spelling and pronunciation of Arkansas. Some preferred to be called the senator from Arkan"saw" while the other favor the name Ar"Kansas".

In 1881, the conflict was resolved by the state General Assembly. Concurrent Resolution No. 4, which stated that the state's name was to be spelled "Arkansas" but pronounced Arkan"saw", was passed. The act was modified in 1947 to more specifically address the pronunciation of the state's name.

In the past, Arkansas’s agriculture was mainly cotton, however nowadays, there are also farms for rice and soybeans. The well known chain supermarket, Walmart, is from Arkansas.
