Kids that lived in Baltimore were allowed to drink beer

The Farmers in Maryland cut the bark from the trees near the ground so the sap from the tree would stop flowing out.
When the sap dried the branches on the tree die.
Tobacco was Maryland's major crop.
Interesting facts
My topic of study was to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of living in the Maryland colony.
Topic of study
I choose this topic of study because I wanted to learn more about what life was like in the Maryland Colony.
Why did I choose this topic of study?
I conducted my investigation by picking 4 books and a note-taking system called "The Research system"
How did I conduct my investigation?

What I learned from my investigation was that Maryland came from Sir George Calvert's dream in lord Baltimore which is north of Virginia.

My final thoughts are: How many people lived in the Maryland colony? Also, How did Cecilius take over the colony and name it Maryland?
Final Thoughts
Cunningham, Kevin, The Maryland Colony, city of publication, Scholastic Library Publishing, 2011, Book

Fradin, Dennis, The Thirteen Colonies, CT, Children's Press, 1989, Book

Kent, Deborah, African-Americans in the Thirteen Colonies, CT, Children's Press, 1996, Book
Books I used
Topic: Colonial Life
The Maryland colony brought indentured servants and enslaved Africans.
Since the Calvert and Penn families argued over the boundary that is between Maryland and Pennsylvania they hired two men: Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon to map the boundary between the two colonies
After Calvert died Cecilius took over and named the colony Maryland.
Cecilius gave large estates(large areas of land that has one owner) to the English aristocrats( A member of a ruling class or of the nobility).
When the number of citizens/residents grew or got larger, the colony needed more workers.
Cecilius granted smaller pieces of land to the other settlers.
