Pennsylvania is located by a lot of states. The capital is Harrisburg and the largest city is Philadelphia. It was the 2nd state to become part of the United States. It was admitted on December 12th 1787. It is the 33rd largest state. Some of its major industries include steel, farming, mining, and cars. Rich in historic lore, Pennsylvania territory was disputed in the early 1600s among the Dutch, the Swedes, and the English. I would love to play volleyball at Penn State. They have the best volleyball team around and probably always will.
