A U.S. state known for being a slave state in the Union during the American Civil War and for occupying a small part of the Delmarva Peninsula. Also known for being the home of the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis.
Named for Queen Henrietta Maria, Charles I's consort.
For some reason Brits pronounce its name as if it was two words, whereas those dastardly Yanks pronounce it as “mare-LEND”.
