The USA bought Alaska from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million, which equates to about 2 cents per acre ! It is the largest state in the union by area and lies at the north-western tip of the North American continent, bordering Canada and only about 50 miles across the Bering Strait to Russia. The capital is Juneau, the largest city Anchorage.
