A little about us!!!
Maryland was governed as a proprietary colony. Many landowners produced tobacco on large plantations that depended on the labor of indentured servants and African slaves. They also grew corn, wheat, rice, and indigo. The difference between Maryland and Virginia, Lord Baltimore was a catholic, we wanted his colony to be a refuse for his persecuted coreligionists. Maryland was known for tolerating different religions. Come and practice your religion with us!!!
The English establish first trading post on Kent Island. Maryland was the 7th State to be admitted to the Union. State Motto " Fatti maschii parole femine " the State Motto is translated as " Strong deeds, Gentle words ".
Who to know??...
Important people were Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles I. Lord Baltimore wanted Maryland to be a place that you could come and practice their own belief and religion.
Come and have fun and prosper with this colony.......this one big family!!!
