Map of Alaska - The Boroughs
The term "county" is used in 48 of the 50 U.S. states. Alaska and Louisiana are the exceptions, they are called parishes in Louisiana and boroughs in Alaska. In Alaska, a civil division corresponding to a county in other States, is called a Borough. Counties, or a county, was (and still is) the term used for lands in England and originally meant the lands of a count or earl. Counties were the earliest units of local government established in the first 13 Colonies that would become the United States. A Borough was (and still is) the term used in England for an incorporated town, that is not a city, that sends members to parliament . The word originates from the old Anglo Saxon word 'Burgh'. This dates back to the times of King Alfred the Great  (849 - 899) who introduced a National Defence system by the formation of 'Burhs' or 'Burghs' which means "fortress". The 'burghs', later called 'Boroughs', were developed as a community effort to defend and act as a refuge against the Vikings.
