Details

William Claiborne established settlements on Kent Island, and Leonard Calvert settled at Saint Mary's City. Maryland opens with a general introduction discussing early explorers, American Indian civilizations in existence before the arrival of Europeans, and more.

Maryland also covers the battles and events of the Revolutionary War, such as the Battle of Brandywine, and Chesapeake Bay's role as a home to numerous privateers who attacked British ships during the war.

  • The land granted to the Calverts on June 20, 1632
