Maryland. It is one of the 50 states of The United States of America. It is located in the northeast region of the country’s Atlantic Coast. Its capital is the city of Annapolis. It is named after Queen Enriqueta Maria of France, wife of King Charles I of England (Maryland means “Land of Mary”). It was one of the thirteen colonies that rebelled against British rule in what is now American territory.
It is also known as the Old Line State in honor of its “troops of the line” (troops of the line), which were repeatedly praised by George Washington because of his excellent performance in the War of Independence of the united States.
The current American anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, was written in 1812 by Francis Scott Key, an amateur lawyer and poet who was inspired to see American troops successfully defending in Baltimore from an attack by British naval troops.
