Kentucky, more properly known as "The Commonwealth of Kentucky," is one of only four U.S. states established as a commonwealth (the other three are Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Virginia). "Commonwealth" is an obsolete English term referring to a government based on the common consent of the people. Today, a state and a commonwealth are considered one and the same thing.

According to historical records, Kentucky was inhabited by Native Americans in prehistoric days, but by the time European settlers arrived in the mid-18th century, there were no "major" Native American settlements in the region.

The land was supposedly only being used as hunting grounds by Shawnees from the north and Cherokees from the south.

However, this explanation smacks of European convenience.

There were most probably many smaller Native American villages scattered throughout the bluish-green grassland that later became Kentucky.
