Delaware was one of the first states to be colonized when Europeans began to settle in America, and the history of the First State is one of the most fascinating histories in the nation. Lewes survived bombardment multiple times, Wilmington was a threatened port city, and Dover was a critical town during the American Revolution and Civil War.
