Recent History of Maine

In 1838-1839, a border dispute between the United States and Canada (then owned by Great Britain) almost started a war. This conflict went down in history as the “Aroostuk War”. The borders were finally established by the treaty of 1842.

As the US expanded westward, many Maine residents left for new lands, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The skills of the residents of Maine to process timber and build ships were especially in demand during the “gold rush” in California in 1849 and the development of the northwestern United States (Oregon and Washington). There are a lot of people from the state of Maine on the Pacific coast of the USA.

The people of Maine were staunch opponents of slavery and took an active part in the American Civil War. Relative to population, Maine provided more soldiers and sailors to the northern army and navy than any other state. Raised from the Maine militia, the 20th Infantry Regiment is believed to have played a key role in the famous Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania.

In the middle of the 19th century, a lot of immigrants from Ireland came to Maine, and at the end of the century – Canadians of French origin. Both those and others professed Catholicism, therefore, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Catholic Church greatly influenced the formation of public opinion in the state.

With the development of the textile industry in the South of the United States in the first half of the last century, weaving mills in Maine began to close. The Second World War brought another boom in the economy, when the shipyards of the state built many ships for the US Navy. In recent decades, production volumes have also been greatly reduced in Maine’s most “traditional” industry – logging.

But the picturesque nature of Maine attracts more and more vacationers, tourism plays an increasingly important role in the Maine economy.
