Talk about hard, I was thinking number of letters in the name of the state for a second...I'm not very good at these. My brain hurts

Just a couple of nits:

(1) The numbers are the order in which the states ratified the Constitution; they all received statehood at the same time, because the Constitution did not come into force until the first 9 states had ratified it.

(2) They were all independent states to begin with. From 1783, when the colonies defeated the British (or 1776, when they declared independence) until the ratification in 1789, the colonies were all independent states.

I figured that out about the states joing up, but was too lazy to look it all up. I did not like it too much.
