MARYLAND


By Alexandra , 1/10/11, Ms. Clark




                             The State of Maryland
   The Capital!
Marylands state Capital is Annapolis. Founded in 1649. On the side walks, if you
   squint slightly you will see the town the founding fathers saw. The population in
   the entire state is 5,042,438. That is a lot of people! Also, the state flag is 12,407
   square miles long. June 14th is also Flag day! When you walk up to the capital
   building, there is a notice that says Please Come in. Once you walk in, a woman
   will come and ask you if you would like to have a tour. She might tell you if there
   is one starting now or when one will. No other Capital building has been in such
   long continuous use. There is a picture of William Pit, supporter of American
   rights, Washington resigning his Commission as C in C of the Continental Army in
   this building in 1783. The Capital building is very beautiful, there are many echoes
   of European architecture. The Capital building became a historic land mark in
   1968.

Maryland Colleges

 St. John's College is a liberal art college with two
  U.S. campuses: one in Annapolis, Maryland.
  Founded in 1696 as a preparatory school, King
  William's School, the school received a
  collegiate charter in 1784, making it one of the
  oldest institutions of higher learning in the
  United States. Since 1937, it has followed an
  unusual curriculum, the Program, based on
  discussion of works from the Western
  philosophic, scientific and literary canon; this
  program is probably that for which the school is
  best known. The mascot or logo for the basket
  ball team is a bird.
