The seventh state to ratify the United States Constitution, Maryland, is tucked between Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The "Free State," as it's called is about the size of Hawaii in land mass. Despite its size, it has a wide variety of topography. The nickname "America in Miniature," is fitting for its sand dunes, to the east, marshlands that include bald cypress, rolling hills of oak forests, and mountainous pine groves in the west.
The state rises to the height of 3,360 feet at the Black Mountain range in the southwest corner. Most of the population of this state is centered in the cities and suburbs around these areas. Because if its proximity to Washington DC, it is famous for its technology. Most of the government research institutes are located in this state. That includes John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, the United States Census Bureau, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Standards, and the Human Genome Sciences, to name a few. Maryland is also the location of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.
The state was the fantasy of George Calvert, 1st Lord of Baltimore. He petitioned King Charles for the royal charter because he wanted a colony close to his Catholicism that would be a haven for Catholics. He also wanted to grow tobacco to make up for an earlier failure in Newfoundland. They named the State after Henrietta Maria of France. The name Maryland Colony in Latin is "Terra Maria."
One curiosity about the state is the most colonists who arrived there were indentured servants who hired themselves out to pay for their passage. In those days, the line between black slaves and laborers was very thin so they both worked together. As the economic conditions improved in England improved, many more slaves were imported and that line hardened. The slaves worked in fields as tobacco laborers. During the War of 1812, it was at Fort McHenry that Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner during the British bombardment.
