At the beginning of America's history, Maine was a territory often fought over by Loyalists and Patriots.  In fact, it was not until the War of 1812 ended that Maine was officially surrendered to the United States.  At that time, the territory became part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  In 1820, Maine voted to become its own separate entity, and on March 15, was admitted as the 23rd state in the Union.

The United States Postal Service recognized the 100th anniversary of Maine's statehood in 2020 with a new Forever stamp.  The design featured an oil painting by noted American Realist artist Edward Hopper.  Hopper was inspired by the rocky coastlines of New England and spent much of his life painting what he saw there.

Today, Maine is a state most known for its rugged natural beauty.  The northernmost state east of the Great Lakes is home to vast pine forests, teh granite mountains of Acadia National Park, and, of course, its picturesque coastlines.  All of these features draw millions of people to Maine each year.  Whether you want to enjoy a summer day at the beach, a hike through the woods, or even a snowy ski trip, Maine has it all.  It's nicknamed "Vacationland" for a good reason.
