Its Romance, History. and Interesting
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
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
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

“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
