It was not a part of U.S. but was bought from Russia for around seven million dollars on thirtieth of March in the year 1867. Later it became a state on 3rd of January in the year 1959. Its name was taken from an Aleut word “alaxsxaq” which means the mainland and it was named by the Russian colonists.
