Maine

Today we got to experience the beauty of Maine.  Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site was amazing.  The Light House was impressive and the 1754 National Historic Landmark Fort was unbelievable.  At the same time, I think what impressed me the most was finding out how important Maine was to the development of the colonies.

  1. I also thought it was interesting at the amount of traffic that came into Maine. I had never really thought about it but Maine supplied fish to Europe and the slaves in the Carribean. I also never connected Maine with the triangle trade before either.
