Last week’s question
Which U.S. state is known as the Gem State?
a.  Alaska
b.  Idaho
c.  Utah
d.  Wyoming
The correct answer is B. In 1863, Congress designated the Territory of Idaho with the erroneous belief that Idaho was a Shoshone word meaning “Gem of the Mountains.” In spite of the misunderstanding concerning the origin of the name, the state continues to be known as the “Gem State” and the “Gem of the Mountains.”
