Maine – 50 States – US Geography

Maine is known as the “Pine Tree State.” Much of Maine is forested, but between the thousands of lakes and rivers, and the extensive Atlantic Ocean coastline, residents of Maine spend plenty of time on the water. On March 15th, 1820, as part of the Missouri Compromise, Maine became the 23rd, and easternmost, state of the Union.

Our series of US geography videos “Visit the 50 States,” gives you a little history and interesting facts about each state. For every state, you’ll learn when it entered the Union, what’s its motto, how did it get its nickname, and see what the flag, seal, and state capitol building all look like. We’ll find the state capital on the map! There’s also fun trivia – do you know the state tree, flower, and bird? Watch and find out!
