Maine is the northernmost state in the United States, located in the far northeast of the country, a region called New England. The state is limited to Canada to the north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. To the east, Maine is bordered by Canada and the U.S. state of New Hampshire.
The State of Maine has always been disputed by the French and the British. As a result of these wars, England was forced to impose more taxes and ban trade between American colonies and other countries. This resulted in great discontent in all thirteen colonies. After the War of Independence of the United States, the State of Maine continued to be part of Massachusetts, having become the twenty-third American state only on March 15, 1820.
