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 present-day Indiana. Meanwhile, at the Supreme Court session in August 1796, the case of the Indiana Company 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 controversial case for a long time disappeared from the list, and, as as a result, the Indiana Land Company lost its right and disappeared from sight. The governor of Indiana serves as the executive director of the state and has the authority to administer government as set forth in the Indiana Constitution.
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). In northwest Indiana there are several ridges and sand dunes, some of which reach nearly 200 feet in height; most of them are found in Indiana Dunes National Park. The largest educational institution is Indiana University, whose flagship campus was approved as an Indiana Seminary in 1820. Later, ownership of the claim was transferred to 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. Indiana was the first Western state to mobilize for the United States in the war, and Indiana's soldiers participated in every major clash of the war.
