Known as the "Old Line State" and the "Free State," Maryland is a fascinating state for students to study. This book covers all the basics that students need to know about the seventh state (and one of the original thirteen colonies). The book includes chapters on the land, history, government, and major industries. There is also a chapter on famous Marylanders, from Frederick Douglass and Thurgood Marshall to Cal Ripken, Jr. Every chapter contains a sidebar devoted to the theme "Maryland: Past and Present" which brings a moment from Maryland's past and compares it to the present day. A timeline of important events and a listing of key facts about Maryland are also included.
