State Research Guide: Maryland
9/1/2008
Go home to your roots in the Old Line State.

Others think of Baltimore Orioles “Iron Man” Cal Ripken Jr. If you love history, Maryland is all about the 1814 bombardment of Fort McHenry — Francis Scott Key's inspiration for penning “The Star-Spangled Banner” — and the US Naval Academy at the state capital, Annapolis. But for those whose roots lie in Maryland, it's simply “home.” If that's you, it's time to explore those roots — and our guide will get you going.
