The great state of Kentucky
became the 15th state on June 1, 1792.
Its state capital is Frankfort. Kentucky is from the Iroquois Indian
word "Ken-tah-ten," which means "land of tomorrow." Abraham Lincoln
was born in Kentucky on February 12, 1809 (he was the 16th US President,
serving from 1861 to 1865). Kentucky became known for its bluegrass
music. Appalachian dulcimers typically contain
3 to 5 strings and produce a characteristic soft-sounding but bright
droning sound. The dulcimer is played typically by picking or strumming
the strings with the fingers or with a flat pick while a slide is used to
depress the stings up and down different frets to create a melodic sound.
