Maryland: “The Free State,” one of the 13 original colonies, and home to nearly 400 years of American history has been at the heart of American experience since the nation’s founding.

The capital of Maryland, which is Annapolis, is home to the United States Naval Academy. This state is famous for its blue crabs and the state bird the Baltimore oriole. Maryland is one of the smallest U.S. states in terms of area. Maryland possesses a variety of topography within its borders, contributing to its nickname America in Miniature.
