The name Indiana means Land of the Indians or Land of the Indians. After the French lost the war between France and India in 1763, the English seized territory that would include Indiana in the last days. The governor of Indiana is the chief executive of the state and has the authority to administer government as set out in the Indiana Constitution. Indiana was the first Western state to mobilize for the United States in the war, and Indiana soldiers participated in all of the major clashes of the war.
The largest educational institution is Indiana University, whose flagship campus was approved as an Indiana Seminary in 1820. The other three independent state universities are Vincennes University (founded in 1801 by the Indiana Territory), Ball State University (191) and Southern Indiana University (1965 as ISU - Evansville). Meanwhile, at the Supreme Court session in August 1796, the Indiana Company case was reconvened, but Virginia did not respond, and before it was called again, three-quarters of the States had ratified the proposed amendment (in 179, and the long-contested case disappeared from the list, and, as a result, the Indiana Land Company lost its claim and disappeared from view herself. Northwest Indiana has several sand ridges and dunes, some reaching nearly 200 feet in height; most of them are located in Indiana Dunes National Park.
Later, ownership of the claim was transferred to the Indiana Land Company, the first recorded use of the word Indiana. While Indiana has committed to increasing the use of renewable resources such as wind, hydro, biomass or solar energy, progress has been very slow, mainly due to the continued abundance of coal in southern Indiana.
