Compiled by D. W. Hoegg, Jr., Publicity Manager, Maine Centennial. One hundred years ago Maine became a State of the Union and this year the event is to be ofTiciaily observed with a great celebration, the principal features of which will take place at Portland from June 28th to July 5 While Maine is only a century old as a State, in reality the territory was one of the first settled sections of North Ameri ca. A colony had been established on its shores sixteen years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, Mass., in 1620. 'lhe Maine coast, barring of course, possible discovery by the early Norsemen, was first visited, it is believed, by John Cabot, the English explorer, in 1498, only six years after the discovery of the new world by Columbus. In 1501 the Portu guese explorer,Corte-Real, came to Maine, and in 1524 Verrazano, an Italian, sailing under a French commission, cruised along the coast. In 1525 a Spaniard, Gomez, discovered and named the Penobscot Riv er, Rio de las Gomes, or Stag River, and in 1526 the French explorer Thevet visit ed the territory and returned to Europe with a story of Norumbega, Maine’s my thical city. It was in 1565 that the renowned son of | Great Britain, Sir John Hawkin?, came 1 to Maine and two years later three sur | vivors of his second expedition crossed its interior, the first white men to visit any part of the present State away from the coast line. In 1602 Captain Bartholo mew Gosnold explored its Southwestern shore, and in 1603 Captain Martin Pring, a British trader, discovered Casco Bay on which is now located the City of Port ‘ land. The premier attempt at settlement was made in 1604 by Sieur de Monts, the famous French explorer, who established | the lirat colony in what is now the United States, north of Florida, within the bor ’ ders of the present State of Maine, on ' Neutral Island, in the St. Croix River, | near what is now the city of Calais. The j renowned Champlain was a member of j the party and cruised along the Maine ; coast as far east as the Kennebec River, I naming Mt. Desert Island. After a ter | rible year in which the majority of the j party died from exposure and disease the ; colony was obliged to give up its exist I ence. In 1607 the first English colony was established at Popham, at the mouth of the Kennebec River, by George Popham. j This with the colony at Jamestown, Vir ginia, founded the sime year, were the ' first English settlements on the Atlantic j Coast. The little group, however, after j the death of its founder, was obliged to : abandon the site. The colony, however, I established one notable record for it con : structed, during its year of suffering, the Virginia, the first vessel to be built iu 1 North America. In 1613 the French Jesuits organized a ; mission on Mount Desert Island and in i 1614 the coast of Maine was visited by | Captain John Smith, of Pocahontas fame, ! who made the first reliable map of it and j named many of its principal points, in cluding Cape Elizabeth, He was the first , | to apply the name New England to this northeastern section of the United States. 1 Only three years after the landing of I the Pilgrims, Captain Christopher Levett j established a trading post on one of the | islands now within the limits of Portland, and m 1632 the foundations of the present ! city were established by George Cleeve i and Richard Tucker. Previous to this, however, in 1628,. settlements had been I made along tiie shores of Casco Bay on | territory now within the limits of Bruns wick and Cape Elizabeth. In 1641 occurred another notable event in the history of America when Sir Fer dinando Gorges established the first char tered city in the United States under the name of Gorgeana. This is now the town York. i iic ycai j was a meuiuiauie one in the annals of Maine. In June the first naval battle of the Revolutionary War, j the lirst naval engagement of the present United States, and the first time the Brit ish flag was struck to Americans on land or sea, occurred oil' Machias, Maine, when the British waiship Margaretta Was cap tured by the American ship, Unity. The latter was commanded by Captain Jere miah O’Brien of Machias, often called the “Father of the American Navy,” and for his notable achievement he was given j a vote of thanks by Congress. Another historic event of that year was the march of Benedict Arnold and his army across Maine in an attempt to capture the city of Quebec. Falmouth, now the city of Portland, also was bombarded and destroyed in 1775 by a British fleet under Mowatt. In 1779 Castine, whose career forms | one of the most romantic pages in Ameri can history, was captured by the British, and it was in this engagement that the famous Sir John Moore, the subject of that immortal poem, “The Burial of Sir John Moore,” received his “baptism of lire.” In that battle Paul Revere, who only a few years before had made his memorable ride, led the Massaciiusetts detatchment of troops. In 1803, Commodore Edward Preble of Portland, commanded the American Squadron at Tripoli wrhich defeated the Barbary pirates and upon his return to the United States was received with great distinction and given a vote of thanks and awarded a medal by Con gress. Hundreds of thousands have read Long fellow’s immortal poem, “My Lost Youth,” in which he describes his native city of Portland and in which he has made famous the naval battle between the American warship “Enterprise” and the British warship “Boxer” fought oil the eastern end of Casco Bay. In this bloody engagement the captains of the twro ships were killed in action and both were buried in the old Eastern Cemetery ! at Portland, their graves, side by side, I being visited annually by tourists from i every section of the world. The year 1814 was anotuer notable one I in tlie history of the State. During it the j present city of Eastport was captured by [ the British and Held as a part of Canadian I territory for about four years. The second I capture of Castine by the British also oc ! curred, and a day or two later was fought the remarkable battle of Hampden, much overlooked by historians, and in which ! both American and British soldiers were ! killed, and the present cities of Bangor j and Belfast captured. | On March 15, 1820, Maine officially became a separate State of the Union, up to this time it having been a part of Mas sachusetts and known as the District of Maine. In 1839 occurred one of the most notable events in the history of the United States JOYFUL EATING Unless your food is digested with out the aftermath of painful acidity, the joy is taken out of both eating and living. KIW0ID5 are wonderful in their help to the stomach troubled with over-acidity. Pleasant to take—relief prompt and definite. MADE BY SCOTT & BOWNE MAKERS OF SCOTT’S EMULSION nil m ynj ins AFTER TEN YEARS OF TROUBLE IS RESTORED TO PERFECT HELATH BY TANLAC. “Since I have taken Tanlac I am not only free from my troubles of ten years’ standing but I have also gained lifteen pounds in weight,” said Henry Peltier of 26 East Allen St., Winooski, Vermont, a few days ago. I had been bothered so long with indi gestion that I had lost my appetite almost entirely and sometimes even the sight of food would turn my stomach,” continued Mr. Peltier. “I was troubled with terri ble cramps and my heart would palpitate so bad it looked like I would choke to death. I could never get any rest or sleep to amount to anything for I would be come so nauseated after I went to bed that l could not retain what I had eaten and I would have to be getting up several times during the night. After I did get to sleep I would have terrible dreams the rest of the night, and through the day I was subject to awful dizzy spells. Of mornings I felt so tired out that I would never take a bite for breakfast. I was about lifteen pounds underweight and was so weak that my work was too hard for me and 1 had to change to lighter work. “I was very discouraged when I began taking Tanlac because I had taken so many different medicines and got no re lief. But Tanlac showed its merit right from the start and by the time 1 had finished my third bottle all symptoms of my troubles had disappeared. My diges tion could not be better and I have such a fine appetite that I am almost ashamed of the way 1 eat. I am not bothered with cramps any more and my heart action is normal and my breathing free and easy. I don’t have any trouble retaining every thing 1 eat and 1 have gained back ail my iost weight, fifteen pounds. After a good night’s rest I get up every morning ready for my breakfast and go to my work feel ing .ust fine. Dizzy spells never trouble me at all, in fact, I am in as good health as I could want and I owe it all to Tanlac.” Tanlac is sold in Belfast by Read & Hills; in Prospect by L C. Dow & Co., in Brooks by Albert R. Pilley, Stockton Springs by J. C. Gordon and in Winter port by Winterport Farmers’ Union. and in which Maine was the great factor around which revolved the principal in cidents. This was the Aroostook War which threatened hostilities between Great Britain and the United States. Large numbers of troops were raised and immense sums of money appropriated by botli nations for the expected conflict, the commanding officer for the United States being the renewed General Winfield Scott Actual bloodshed was averted, however, and the cause of all the trouble, the northeastern boundary of Maine, was adjusted by a treaty negotiated by Daniel Webster, Secretary of State, and Lord Ashburton, representing Great Britain. Maine was the pioneer which blazed the path of National prohibition when in 1851 the State adopted an amendment to its Constitution prohibiting the manufac ture and sale of intoxicating liquors. In all of the wars, from tne Revolu tionary down to the World War, Maine has more than done its share in the cause of right and its record along this line is one of the most glorious pages in its his tory. iiie worm owes mucu lo uie sons auu laughters of Maine.
