Gopher State
   is a nickname for the state of   
Minnesota
Unofficial nickname. There was discussion in the mid 19th C about whether to call Minnesota "The Gopher State" or "The Beaver State." In February 1858, the new Minnesota Legislature introduced the “Five Million Loan” bill. The purpose was to provide money to build railroads in the state. During the public debate, a cartoon circulated depicting the railroad tycoons as nine gophers with human heads pulling a Gopher Train. This possibly helped sway the decision to The Gopher State. In fact, the nickname refers to the “striped gopher” which is not actually a gopher, but is a thirteen-lined ground squirrel.
