The City and Borough of Sitka, usually known simply as Sitka, is one of Alaska's unified city-boroughs. It is situated on the Alaska Panhandl on the Alexander Archipelago in the Pacific. It was in Sitka that in 1867, the Russian flag was lowered and the American flag raised after the purchase of Alaska, due to the fact that it served as the capital of what was called "Russian America".
