It became the 19th state when it joined the United States of America on December 11th, 1816. In the 203 years since that admission to the country, Indiana has gone on to contribute a lot great things to the country. Like Larry Bird, David Letterman, James Dean, and Phil Harris, just to name a few. Indiana is known for so much more than just that handful of celebrities, however. Indiana is know for being Hoo Hoo Hoosiers. For proudly sporting the color red, for housing great universities like the University of Indiana and the University of Notre Dame, and for handling all matters of extreme weather from hot summers to cold winters, and the potholes that come in between.

And if these are familiar, odds are that one possesses a local's knowledge of the great state of Indiana! Up for the challenge?
