You may think of Alaska as the westernmost state in the United States, especially when looking at a map, but it's also the easternmost state.

How?

It stretches so far from the west that it falls into the eastern hemisphere. In fact, Semisopochnoi Island, part of Alaska's Aleutian Islands, is technically the easternmost spot in all of North America.

1. And I am guessing that it's the most northernmost state too. As to being the southernmost?,

Would be freaky, but I don't think it is, that honor probably goes to FL or perhaps Hawaii, I am guessing and I'm not including US territories.

2. IIRC, as far as states go, Hawaii has the southernmost point

Although not quite as far south as Puerto Rico.
