The colonies became states of the new nation in 1788, when New Hampshire became the ninth and final necessary state to ratify?the?United States Constitution. The date?each state joined the Union is shown in the table below.?Five states were added during the 20th century. Alaska and Hawaii were the last states to join the Union -- both in 1959.
