Lord Baltimore by Clifford W. Mills

Cecil Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore, guided the development of the Maryland Colony for more than 40 years, from its beginnings in 1632 to its period of stability in the 1660s and beyond. He lived in a time when the world was filled with religious intolerance and sought to change that with the Act of Toleration, one of the very first calls for religious freedom in America. In addition to his contributions to social progress, Lord Baltimore was an effective leader who was experienced in both business and law. He used his skills, persuasion, and all the resources at his disposal to build a long-term strategy and see his plans through to succeed in maintaining a successful colony.
