Delaware is known as the “First State” because it was the first to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Its place in American history and colonialism is uniquely blended with the state’s European influences.

The places that are showcased in this episode are reflective of Delaware’s motto “Liberty and Independence”. They are just a sample of the state that has shaped President Joe Biden and what makes his home state of Delaware intriguing.
