On this day June 30, 1958

On this day Congress passed a law authorizing Alaska to become the 49th state in the Union. This is the first state added since 1912.

Imagine in todays fight over energy if Alaska was controlled by Russia versus becoming a part of America. Having a communist country boarder an area next to Canada and this close to America. If you consider how much of the oil was put into the national reserve. It makes you wonder if they knew how much oil would come out of the state when considering them.
