First-person accounts, archival illustrations, and historic maps reveal Maryland's rich history. Discover how the colony was founded by Catholics yet largely settled by Protestants; how it was uniquely ruled by a single proprietor; why a ton of tea was burned in Annapolis; how tobacco and wheat were often used as money; and why the American Revolution ended here.

Middle-school students will encounter Colonial America through fresh eyes in this comprehensive series. Archival photographs, period maps, and lively, first-person accounts from explorers, Native Americans, missionaries, slaves and indentured servants, farmers, government officials, and more are seamlessly woven together to create a vibrant and accurate portrait of life in 18 European colonies—not just British but French and Spanish, too.
