Overview

Maryland has had a tough yet tenacious history. During the American Revolution, George Washington praised Maryland's soldiers as "troops of the line," and in the U.S. Civil War, the state protected Washington, D.C., and fought valiantly for the Union. Maryland today still contributes much to the nation, from presidential negotiations at Camp David to the groundbreaking research work at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-These titles use an "almanac" style to outline each state's history, people, land, economy, politics and government, and culture, etc. The books open with a page of "Fast Facts," including population statistics and the state motto, song, tree, flower, fruit, etc. A section of brief biographical sketches of famous native sons and daughters is appended along with a spread on events and attractions. The busy layouts throughout feature numerous sidebars, multicolored headings and captions, full-color photos, graphs, illustrations, and maps. Each chapter opens with a cited quote from a famous person from the state. While these dry texts provide compact sources of straight facts, titles in the "America the Beautiful" series (Children's) are far superior. Purchase only as additional resources for reports.-Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
