New Hampshire has 4 nicknames, the first being the best known:

Historical notes

New Hampshire was the first state to have its own constitution, its spirit of independence is contained in its motto: “Live free or die”, live free or die.

NH plays an important role in national elections, being the first state to hold the primary and this has certainly influenced the rest of the nation, giving rise to the saying “As New Hampshire goes, so goes the nation”.
