Historical Description[]

The colony of Maryland was founded in 1632 as a haven for Catholics fleeing persecution in Europe. Its founder was George Calvert, Lord Baltimore, from whom the city took its name. For much of the 1700s and 1800s Baltimore was one of the largest cities in North America. During its heyday as a blue-collar industrial powerhouse, Baltimore was known for steel production and shipbuilding, as well as a major port linked to the nation’s rail network.

The citizens of Baltimore had divided loyalties during the American Civil War, though Maryland remained in the Union. The city’s prosperity increased following the war and continued to flourish even after a great fire destroyed thousands of buildings in 1904. During World War II, Baltimore was the second-leading producer of the iconic cargo transports known as ‘liberty ships.’ Today it is home to a thriving creative culture focused on arts, music, and video games - including Big Huge Games!
