State song!!! • Oh the hills of dear New Castle,and the smiling vales between,When the corn is all in tassel,And the meadowlands are green;Where the cattle crop the clover,And its breath is in the air,While the sun is shining overOur beloved Delaware

Delaware major industries and exports • From its agricultural beginnings, Delaware has developed into an important industrial state. There are a total of three fortune 500 companies headquartered in Delaware. The incorporation industry employs about 1,000 people and brings in about one quarter of the state budget in taxes and fees. Wilmington is called the "Chemical Capital of the World," largely because of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., a chemical industry giant originally founded as a powder mill in 1802. As of 1999 the company was the 16th largest US industrial corporation, with sales of $28 billion. The Chrysler Corp. is another leading employer. Notable Delaware manufactures, in addition to chemicals and transportation equipment, include apparel, processed meats and vegetables, paper, printing and publishing, scientific instruments, and plastic products
