About Maryland

Maryland is known to many as the Old Line State. During the Revolutionary War, General George Washington called Maryland "Old Line State" and thereby associated Maryland with its regular line troops, the Maryland Line. However, Maryland is also known as The Free State, and was first recognized as a "free state" on November 1, 1864. On that day, the Maryland Constitution of 1864 took effect. Residents settled on Maryland's 12,407 square miles are often referred to as Marylanders. On a map, you can see that Maryland is represented with an MD; on certain maps you can see the largest city in the state is understood to be Baltimore with roughly 622,104 people. Maryland's capital is Annapolis, and the entire state's population is 5.976 million people. Maryland's state bird is the Baltimore Oriole, its state flower is the Black-eyed Susan, and its state tree is the White Oak. A common song sang in the Old Line State would be its very own state song: Maryland, My Maryland. The state motto is "Fatti maschii, parole femine." or Strong deeds, womanly word." However, today we'd say "gentle words."
