Delaware is one of the 50 states of the United States, in the South-Atlantic or Southern region. It is bordered to the south and west by Maryland, north by Pennsylvania, and east by New Jersey and the Atlantic Ocean. The state takes its name from Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr, an English nobleman and Virginia's first colonial governor. Delaware occupies the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula. It's the second smallest and sixth least populous state, but the sixth most densely populated. Delaware's largest city is Wilmington. The state is divided into three counties, the lowest number of any state. From north to south, they are New Castle County, Kent County, and Sussex County. While the southern two counties have historically been predominantly agricultural, New Castle County is more industrialized. Before its coastline was explored by Europeans in the 16th century, Delaware was inhabited by several groups of Native Americans, including the Lenape in the north and Nanticoke in the south. It was initially colonized by Dutch traders at Zwaanendael, near the present town of Lewes, in 1631. Delaware was one of the 13 colonies participating in the American Revolution. On December 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, and has since been known as "The First State". The state was named after the Delaware River, which in turn derived its name from Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr (1577–1618) who was the ruling governor of the Colony of Virginia at the time Europeans first explored the river.

The given location map of Delaware clearly shows that the Delaware is located at the north-east the US and North West coast of Atlantic Ocean. If you can see minutely the Delaware map, you will find it that the state is located at the north-eastern part of the Delmarva Peninsula. The state shares boundary with New Jersey in the north-east, Pennsylvania lies in the north and the state Maryland has maximum boundary length with Delaware that shares entire west and south. However, in the east, Atlantic Ocean makes coastline for the state.

The name of state is derived from Thomas West 3rd Baron De La Warr, a British nobleman and Virginia"s foremost colonial governor, after whom as it is now known as; otherwise, it was originally Cape Henlopen. The Delaware USA is second smallest state in terms of area after Rhode Island.

The Delaware state map is of course small but surprisingly, the state ranks second in terms of civilian scientists and engineers as percentage of the employees and number of patents issued to companies or individuals per thousand workers. Not only this, the tiny state has had history of its evolution; interestingly, it was one of the 13th state that participated in the 4th July US Independence declaration in 1776. Above all, on 7th December 1787, it became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States; this is the reason that it is known as The First State.
