The old town of Bisbee, Arizona
Arizona
A detachment of Army Scouts and Cavalrymen discovered rich deposits of copper, lead and silver in 1877 leading to the establishment of mining claims and a prosperous mining industry in Bisbee, Arizona. Currently the county seat of Cochise County, Bisbee is still a mining center but much of the town has moved a few miles south. The older parts of the town are located in a steep canyon and are known as an artists community and now has art galleries, gourmet restaurants, coffee houses, book stores and specialty shops. At one point, Bisbee was likely the largest city in the Arizona Territory, but time and mine closings have taken their toll. Bisbee is now known primarily for it picturesque streets and old houses. The Bisbee mines produced 8 billion pounds of copper, 102 million ounces of silver and 2.8 million ounces of gold along with millions of pounds of zinc, lead and manganese.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
