Maine is located in the northeastern United States on the border with Canada. The rugged rocky coast of Maine hosted probably the first European visitors – the Greenlandic Vikings – in the 10th century for a transitional period.
Since the 16th century, Maine has been the subject of disputes between England and France, whose first settlers met with fierce opposition from the Penobskot and Passamaquoddy Indians. The British eventually won in 1763, but the whole area was part of the state of Massachusetts until the war of 1812. Maine became a free state thanks to the Missouri Compromise Act as a counterweight to the slave state of Missouri.
The wooded landscape and rocky soil of Maine were not very suitable for cultivation. Potatoes continue to be the main crop (3rd place in the USA). But as transport improved during the 19th century, rich supplies of wood, stone, and fish formed the basis for industrial development. Other sectors were supported by cheap hydropower. Maine is not an economically important state in New England either, but its natural beauty remains relatively untouched and contributes to the development of tourism.
