Pennsylvania (PA) -- or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania -- is the original home of the Susquehannock, Iroquois, Eriez, Shawnee, and other Native American tribes. After 1630, it was colonized by the Dutch and English. During the 18th century, it became part of the fledgling United States on 12 December 1787, after the failed Articles of Confederation. Today, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, and Erie have the largest populations. Harrisburg, is the state capital. Source: Wikipedia:Pennsylvania
