Transcript of Maryland and Delaware Sales Pitch

Journey to Maryland or Delaware
Life in the Colony
Recently founded in 1634 by Lord Baltimore, this proprietary colony is a place of religious tolerance, especially for Catholics. A vibrant tobacco economy provides plenty of job positions for indentured servants (and a free passage to the new world). The colony's capital of St. Mary's hosts the meetings of the General Assembly, and is an excellent cultural center.
This proprietary colony hosts very fertile soil, making it an excellent place to grow grain. Rivers in this region have been harnessed to power water wheels, another important aspect in the grain exporting. The capital is located at New Castle, and is the seat of colonial government.

Delaware is currently a part of Maryland, although there are rumors of a merging with Pennsylvania in the future.
