Kentucky - The Bluegrass State

Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis were both born in Kentucky but during the Civil War, Kentucky was a border state that officially remained neutral.
One thing I found about Kentucky is there are stone walls everywhere in the countryside. I thought New England had a lot of stone walls but they've got nothing compared to Kentucky.
