Maryland

OLD LINE STATE

Maryland is a Mid-Atlantic state that’s defined by its abundant waterways and coastlines on the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Its largest city, Baltimore, has a long history as a major seaport. Fort McHenry, birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, sits at the mouth of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, home to the National Aquarium and Maryland Science Center.  According to some historians, General George Washington bestowed the name “Old Line State” and thereby associated Maryland with its regular line troops (the Maryland Line) who served courageously in many Revolutionary War battles.
