A charter from King Charles I of England (1600-1649) provided land in the Chesapeake Bay area to Lord Cecil Calvert Baltimore (1605-1675). The new owner named the country Maryland after Henrietta Mary (1609-1669), the king’s wife and Catholic, and made it a refuge for Roman Catholics suffering from religious persecution in England. However, Calvert did not impose any restrictions on non-Catholics and accepted all believing Christians.

Calvert’s brother Leonard (1606–1647) founded Saint Mary’s City in 1634, the first capital of the area. The establishment of tobacco plantations moved the main settlement centers to the northwest, and in 1694 the capital moved to Annapolis. Baltimore was founded in 1729. Although the slave market had been prosecuted since 1783, many slaves worked on many plantations and slavery was not abolished until 1864.

Disputes between the Calvert and Penn families ended in the 1960s with the creation of the Mason and Dixon Line, the border that separated Maryland and Pennsylvania. Maryland played an active role in the War of Independence, and the Treaty of Paris, which recognized the independence of the colonies, was signed in 1783 in Annapolis. In 1814, the British attack on Baltimore was repulsed. The following decades began to build the first road and rail routes through the Appalachian Mountains. During the Civil War, the interests of the citizens of Maryland differed, but the state remained in the Union. Maryland never deprived blacks of the right to vote, and this attracted many blacks from the South to its territory.

The Port of Baltimore remains one of the busiest in the United States, also because the city is a center for shipbuilding, electrical engineering, and electronics. However, the greatest benefits are provided by services, trade, finance and developing tourism.
