Description

Excerpt from Men of Mark in Maryland, Vol. 1: Biographies of Leading Men in the State; With an Introductory Chapter on Maryland, Proprietary Province and State This province was situated on the Atlantic seacoast, and the State that has grown from it comprises some square miles, of which about a fourth is covered by the Chesapeake Bay and its estuaries. The territory consists of a most varied country in its geologic history, and in its climate. From the flat coastal plain of the lower Eastern Shore to the lofty mountains of the extreme west of the State, is found a great variety of soil and products. The coastal plain rises into the Piedmont region and the western counties are crossed by the parallel ranges of the Appalachian system. The waters of the Bay teem with oysters, crabs and fish, and over these waters fly large flocks of wild fowl. The same waters furnish great highways of commerce for all the eastern part of the State. Toward the west the land rises; good water power is found in the streams, and the mountains abound in veins of coal and iron. The climate is neither so severe as in the New England States, nor so enervating as in the far south. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
