Delaware is the second smallest state of the Unites States and ranks after Rhode Island. In the beginning, the citizens of the state were relatively more independent in terms of their actions than the other states. Delaware was a part of Pennsylvania until the year 1703. The citizens were initially less enthusiastic in becoming independent but later on it was realized that their independence as a separate entity required that they should become independent like the other states and especially Pennsylvania.That is the reason efforts started for the revolution.
