Indiana Military Housing
With a name that's usually believed to mean "land of the Indians", Indiana was accepted on Dec. 11, 1816, as the 19th state of the union. Its capital has been since 1825 at Indianapolis.
It borders the state of Michigan to the north as well as Lake Michigan, Ohio to the east, Kentucky to the south, and Illinois to the west, which makes it an essential element of the American Midwest.
Following the American Revolution the properties of Indiana were open to U.S. settlers. The inflow of white immigrants brought increased war together with the Native American tribes. The battles continued until the 1811 Battle of Tippecanoe, which was won by General, William Henry Harrison, and future president.
