Before Europeans set foot on the land that became Maryland, American Indians enjoyed the region’s rich natural resources.  The calm waterways, mild weather, and abundant wildlife proved irresistible to English colonists.  But the colonists who settled Maryland sought more than a pleasant landscape and ample food—they also sought to create a place where they could enjoy religious freedom.  Read about Maryland’s early history, from the rise of the Algonquians to statehood.
