United States Geography in the Early Republic - MAINE


Until 1820, was only a part of Massachusetts, though the two states are separated by New Hampshire. It is shaped like a mitton, with the fingers pointing north, and the thumb pointing east, into the Atlantic Ocean. Its northern half is surrounded by Canada, all the way down to the tip of the "thumb", where the Atlantic coastline begins. Its western border is New Hampshire.

It is largely mountainous, with one peak rising 5268 feet (quite high for the east). Much of its surface is covered by lakes, rivers, and streams.

The Penobscot River runs almost straight south til it passes Bangor, and runs out into Penobscot Bay
