They had lots of buildings back then like the main house, the slave quarters, a dairy, blacksmiths shop, laundry, smokehouse and barns which made the plantations to large degree, self-sufficient.
Geography and Climate
In Maryland they had coastal plains, Piedmont plateau and the the blue ridge separated by Chesapeake bay. Maryland is about 250 miles long and 90 miles wide with approximately 9,837 square miles of land area. The warm temperature made it easier to grow plants and they did not have harsh winters.
Maryland was named after Queen Henrietta Maria.
The original name of the colony was the Province of Maryland
Old Line State, Free State and Little America were all some nicknames Maryland was given.
Maryland had religious freedom for Baptists, Jews, Catholics, Anglicans, Puritans and others. Baptists they believe there is one god, miracles, vicarious atoning death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Christ, and the need for salvation. Catholics believe man must know, love and serve God. Anglicans base their Christian faith on the Bible, traditions of the apostolic Church. Jews believe there is one god, and there are the chosen ones. Puritans believe that God had formed a unique covenant, or agreement, with them. They believed that God expected them to live according to the Scriptures.
