Maryland Brief History

Due to the features of the relief and depending on the proximity to the ocean, the climate in different regions of Maryland varies greatly. The eastern counties of the state, located on the coastal lowlands, are characterized by a humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and short, mild winters. To the west, in the mountainous regions, the climate is cooler, humid continental.

In 1524, the Italian Giovanni da Verrazano sailed along the Atlantic coast of North America (including off the coast of modern Maryland). Almost a hundred years later, in 1608, Captain John Smith, one of the leaders of the English colony of Virginia, explored the coast of the Chesapeake Bay. In 1629, George Calvert (1st Baron Baltimore) applied to the English King Charles I with a request to allow him to create north of Virginia new colony. After his death, in 1632, the royal patent for the establishment of such a colony was received by Calvert’s son, Cecilius. Then Maryland (“Mary’s Land”) got its name: it was named after the wife of Charles I, Queen Henrietta Maria. The first colonists landed on the Maryland coast on March 25, 1634, which is now celebrated annually as Maryland Day.

In 1681, after the creation of the new colony of Pennsylvania, a border conflict arose between Maryland and its new northern neighbor, which even led to armed clashes and was finally resolved only almost a hundred years later, in the sixties of the 18th century (the border was marked along the so-called “Mason-Dixon Line “).

The Calverts who owned Maryland were Catholics, which, despite the officially proclaimed freedom of religion in the colony, more than once created problems for them. In 1689, after the “Glorious Revolution” in England, an uprising of Protestant Puritans broke out in Maryland, which ended with the prohibition of Catholicism and the transition of Maryland to the status of a “royal colony” (in contrast to the previously existing belonging to the Calvert family). Later, in 1715, the fifth Baron Baltimore Charles Calvert (after the transition to the official religion of England – Anglicanism) again received from King George I the right to own Maryland. The city of Baltimore (named after Cecilius Calvert) was founded in 1729 and is now the largest city in the state.
