Learning About the U.S. State of Maryland

The state of Maryland is in the middle of the Eastern Seaboard. It is thought to have been named after the wife of King Charles I, Queen Henrietta Maria. The English term for Maria is Mary. It was in this state that the Mason and Dixon Line was drawn in the 1760s to help settle an argument between the Penn and Calvert families. This became the traditional boundary between the North and the South. Maryland’s nickname is the Old Line State. It is the proud state to be home to the U.S. Naval Academy. The Chesapeake Bay divides the state into two parts and is home to fish and wildlife. There is plenty of harvesting of crabs, oysters, and clams. The capital is Annapolis. The state is well-known for its Maryland style crab cakes.
