United States is divided in five regions. One of them is Northeast. Northeast is composed of eleven states. They are Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania. New England or Northeast has played a dominant role in American history. Until well into the 19th century, New England was the country's cultural and economic center. The earliest European settlers of New England were English Protestants who came in search of religious liberty.New England is also important for the cultural contribution it has made to the nation.

New Englanders are known for their hard work, shrewdness, thrift and ingenuity.

A group of people called the Amish live in Pennsylvania. They have an agricultural economy and also make most of the things that they use. Because of their religious beliefs, they do not use electricity or telephones in their homes, or use cars or tractors. They travel by horse and buggy.

The Northeast has a varied climate, with four seasons each year. The winters are cold, the summers can be hot. The temperature becomes colder as you travel northward.
