History of Maryland
Maryland was founded in June 1632, by a charter granted by King Charles I of England. One of the original 13 colonies,
Maryland was the refuge of the persecuted Catholics from England. It was the seventh state to ratify the United States Constitution. Despite being a slave state, Maryland remained loyal to the Union during the American Civil War. In 1864, slavery was abolished in the state. During the two World Wars, it was the site of military bases. After World War II, Maryland experienced economic growth. At present, it is the wealthiest state of the country.

Geography

It has forested Appalachian foothills and mountains to its west, sandy dunes to its east and low marshlands near Chesapeake Bay. The Potomac, the Patapsco, and the Susquehanna are some of the important rivers of the state.
