Map of US States

From the time we were little kids, we were taught basic geography. And in the United States of America, we’re taught all about the 50 states right from the get-go! As adults, we’re sometimes quizzed to see if we can remember them, hell, some people can even sing a song to list off all of the 50 states in a pleasurable rhythm that soothes our ears (or hurts them). For whatever reason you want to list off the states, we sorted them into several different versions, including by alphabet, by the letter they start with, and even what capital cities belong in each state. Enjoy!
