  • Maine- United States

    Maine is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and south; New Hampshire to the west; and the Canadian provinces of Quebec to the northwest and New Brunswick to the northeast. Maine is both the northernmost and easternmost portion of New England. It is known for its scenery—its jagged, mostly rocky coastline, its low, rolling mountains, its heavily forested interior, and picturesque waterways—as well as for its seafood cuisine, especially lobster and clams. For thousands of years, indigenous peoples were the only inhabitants of the territory that is now Maine. At the time of European encounter, several Algonquian-speaking peoples inhabited the area. The first European settlement in Maine was by the French in 1604 on ...

Maine is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and south; New Hampshire to the west; and the Canadian provinces of Quebec to the northwest and New Brunswick to the northeast. Maine is both the northernmost and easternmost portion of New England. It is known for its scenery—its jagged, mostly rocky coastline, its low, rolling mountains, its heavily forested interior, and picturesque waterways—as well as for its seafood cuisine, especially lobster and clams. For thousands of years, indigenous peoples were the only inhabitants of the territory that is now Maine. At the time of European encounter, several Algonquian-speaking peoples inhabited the area. The first European settlement in Maine was by the French in 1604 on Saint Croix Island, by Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Mons. The first English settlement in Maine, the short-lived Popham Colony, was established by the Plymouth Company in 1607. A number of English settlements were established along the coast of Maine in the 1620s, although the rugged climate, deprivations, and conflict with the local peoples caused many to fail over the years. As Maine entered the 18th century, only a half dozen European settlements had survived. Patriot and Loyalist forces contended for Maine's territory during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Maine was part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1820 when it voted to secede from Massachusetts. On March 15, 1820, it was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state under the Missouri Compromise. Maine is the 39th most extensive and the 41st most populous of the 50 United States. With respect to crime rates, Maine is also often considered the safest state in the U.S. Maine is the 'whitest' state in the union. Source: Wikipedia

A ten minute documentary on the Maine Indian Land Claims Case. Written, filmed, narrated and edited by Shireen Hinckley. I conducted the interviews in August of 2007. My sources are listed below: ------------------------------------------------------------ PRIMARY SOURCES Anderson, Peter. "What Can $81.5 Million Buy?" The Boston Globe Magazine 27 Oct. 1985. Primary Source This article interviewed many of the same people I interviewed, and it was very helpful in an overall summary of the case. It addressed mainly the good effects of the Settlement, not the cultural downsides. Anita, Paul. "School Dropouts." School Bulletin of T.R.I.B.E. Incorporated: Teaching and Research in Bi-Cultural Education Jan.-Feb. 1971. Primary Source Anita Paul was a 16 year old Passamaquoddy who had dropped out of school because she was being harassed by teachers and students alike. What she wrote in the school bulletin helped me understand more about what the kids were dealing with in other schools of predominately white population. Hansen, Donald C. "Discrimination At Home." Daily Kennebec Journal 22 July 1965. Primary Source I quoted this article directly in my documentary, and it was very helpful in highlighting the point I was making on discrimination. The author was comparing the discrimination against Passamaquoddy in Maine and Blacks in the south. Rogers, Bruce. "The Great Return." Maine Sunday Telegram 7 May 1978. Primary Source This newspaper gave me many good facts about the condition of life on the reservations before the settlement of the Claims Case. I mostly got my exact numbers, dates and percentages from this source. Sockabasin, Allen J. An Upriver Passamaquoddy. 1st ed. Gardiner, Maine: Tilbury House, 2007. Primary Source This book is a first-hand account of a tribal leader. I did not use any of the information in his book, but I did use many of the pictures he had in it. There were many images of the tribe and its history, and I used many of them to illustrate my story. Ssipsis Ganesahoway AKA Eugenia Thompson, ed. "The First American is Last." Maine Indian Newsletter Dec. 1966. Primary Source The Maine Indian Newsletters were edited and distributed during the 1960s and early 1970s, and were very helpful for providing background for my project. They could contain anything from a speech by a president to the announcement of a birth. Stevens, Sue. "Native American Political Issues." 21 Oct. 2007 http://www.geocities.com/capitolhill/9118/history5.html. Primary Source Sue Stevens gave me a very interesting view on the Passamaquoddy's case. Sue Stevens was there throughout much of the case, and was affected very much by the whole issue. Sue summarized the Case from beginning to end in a compelling way that was fun to follow, and she ended with addressing the conflicts that resulted from the case. ------------------------------------------------------------ SECONDARY SOURCES Brimley, Stephen.

"Maine Indian Claims." CBS Evening News. CBS. Indian Township, Maine. 28 Feb. 1977. Primary Source This news clip contained the interviews with the Maine homeowner, adding greatly to my documentary by giving it an additional point of view. "Maine Indian Land Claims." ABC News. ABC. Calais, Maine. 22 Aug. 1977. Primary Source This news segment introduced more of the poverty that was experienced before the claims, and the goals of the Passamaquoddy tribe. In it was also the interview with the Pharmacist. "Maine Indian Land Dispute." ABC News. ABC. Augusta, Maine. 28 Aug. 1985. Primary Source This news clip was after the suit was settled, and included aerial shots of Maine which I used in my documentary. "Special (Indians Vs. Maine)." NBC Nightly Special. NBC. 5 May 1976. Primary Source This nightly special was released shortly after the claims case officially began. The reporter, Lee McCarthy, addressed the fact that the claims was so big, most people do not yet know what is happening. ------------------------------------------------------------ MUSIC Shute, Malcolm.

Though its silt hills are now a popular tourist attraction, the desert originally developed as a result of over-farming in the area. 3. Maine is nicknamed “The Pine Tree State.” The tree appears on the state flag, and, as of 2012, a full 89 percent of the state was covered in forest, making it the most tree-covered state in the US. 4. Maine has a ton of quirky museums, including the telephone museum in Ellsworth, the Maine Coast Sardine History Museum in Jonesport, the Umbrella Cover Museum in Portland, and perhaps most famously, the International Cryptozoology Museum (also in Portland), dedicated to the study of “hidden” or “unknown” animals like Yetis, Bigfoot, and Lake Monsters. 5. Maine is known as “The Birthplace of Prohibition.” The state was the first to ban the sale and manufacture of alcohol in 1851 (although the law was repealed five years later), and in 1880, Portland Mayor Neal Dow, sometimes called the “Father of Prohibition,” ran for president on the Prohibition Party ticket. 6. European contact with what is now called Maine started around 1200 CE when Norwegians interacted with the native Penobscot in present-day Hancock County, most likely through trade. About 200 years earlier, from the settlements of Iceland and Greenland, Norwegians had discovered America and attempted to settle areas such as Newfoundland, but failed to establish a permanent settlement there. Archeological evidence suggests that Norwegians in Greenland returned to North America for several centuries after the initial discovery to collect timber and to trade, with the most relevant evidence being the Maine Penny, a 10th-century Norwegian coin found at a Native American dig site in 1954. 7. The first capital of Maine was Portland. It was established as the village of Casco in 1632, thus making it one of the oldest cities in the US. Today Portland is the state’s largest city. But Portland didn’t remain a capital for long. Just 12 years after Maine became a state, the capital was moved to Augusta. This is an even older city, having been established in 1629 as Cushnoc in an area that was a hotbed of Native American hostilities towards European settlements.

Country: United States of America State: Maine County: Androscoggin County City: Lewiston Population (2010): • Total 36,592 • Density 1,071.5/sq mi (413.7/km2) • Demonym Lewistonion HISTORY: In 1768 a Boston Company known as the Pejepscot Proprietors granted land for a settlement to be called Lewiston on the east side of the Androscoggin River at Twenty-Mile Falls. The recipients were Jonathan Bagley and Moses Little of Newbury, Massachusetts. Settlement began two years later when Paul Hildreth and his family arrived. Hildreth's log cabin was a short distance below the falls and he established a ferry service nearby. Other families followed. By 1790, Lewiston was home to 532 persons. Lewiston was incorporated as a town on February 18, 1795. Water power was harnessed by a timber dam by 1808-1809 and a canal was built. The town grew to 1,549 inhabitants by 1830. The first bridge was built in 1823. Although there were mills by the falls, the present downtown Lewiston was still occupied by a farm, a few dwellings, and a school house. As early as 1836, efforts were made to build dams, canals, and mills, but capital was lacking. Boston investors later made the developments possible. Each of the 1850 and 1860 census counts showed a doubling of the size of Lewiston.The DeWitt Hotel was built around 1854 and the Maine Seminary, later Bates College was established in 1855. After being chartered as a city in 1861, the city prospered during the Civil War, as the demand for textiles was high and steady. Lewiston's first mayor, Jacob Barker Ham, took office in 1863. Subsequent mayors went on to higher office. William P. Frye went to Congress and served as President pro tem of the U.S. Senate, twice being next in line for the presidency due to vacancies in the office of Vice President. Alonzo Garcelon, mayor in 1871, became governor of Maine in 1879. Another mayor-turned-congressman was Daniel McGillicuddy. An impressive city building was constructed in 1873. The current Lewiston City Hall replaced it after a fire in 1890. The Music Hall was built in 1877, with the aim of being "the best opera house east of Boston." It was renovated between 1999 and 2003 to house the Lewiston District courthouse. A spur from Lewiston by the Canadian National Railway introduced competition to the Maine Central Railroad and freight rates dropped. Starting in the 1870s, the Grand Trunk Station became the arrival point for thousands of French Canadians. Many settled in the area between Lisbon Street and the river, in blocks built by the mills or in an area called "Little Canada." By 1880, the population had risen to 19,083, a tenfold increase in 40 years. The oldest Roman Catholic church in Lewiston is St. Joseph's Church, built on Main Street between 1863 and 1867. The first parochial school was established in 1882. The first teachers were Sisters of Charity until replaced by the Ladies of Sion in 1892. St. Peter's Church served the French parish, was replaced by Saints Peter and Paul Church, built 1905-1938. St. Dominic's High School was founded in 1941 in the clubhouse of L'Association St. Dominique. Lewiston High School opened in 1850 and moved into a brick building on Main Street in 1859. A fire company was started in 1849. The Grey Nuns organized the first hospital, St. Mary's, which was dedicated in 1889. Central Maine General Hospital was established in 1891 with thirty beds in two houses on Main Street. Due to increased competitions from textile concerns in the South and overseas, the textile industry in Lewiston has gradually declined. A variety of new industries have grownup to replace it. The Geiger Brothers, publishers of The Farmer's Almanac, brought their printing business to Lewiston in 1955. Today 36 592 people live in Lewiston (2010 census).

Seeds Found in Meteorite In 1864 a meteor shower fell near Peillerot, a town in southern France. The meteorites were sent to a museum in Montauban. From there, most pieces of the meteorite were sent to different museums in all of Europe. Only two meteorites remained in Montauban, sealed inside a glass jar. That would be cool, to have meteorites in a glass jar in your house, great conversation piece! Not long after this event, a team of researchers from Chicago found entire seeds and coal embedded inside one of the meteorites. The first assumption was that the plant and coal fragments had somehow attached to the meteorite on impact. The problem was that the entire meteorite was covered in a glassy layer that was probably created by the heat of falling through the atmosphere, so the theory was dismissed! Researchers started to believe that they may have found the first proof of extraterrestrial life ever!! Even today people use this example of seeds inside this meteorite as proof of alien life forms. Everyone was pretty excited until further research proved that when the meteorite was placed in contact with water, it would became soft and clay-like so the insertion of the plant and coal fragments inside could have been child's-play for anyone. After this shocking discovery, it then became obvious that someone had messed around with the meteorites before being sealed in the glass jar. The proof of life on other planets was debunked completely when researchers discovered that the supposed glassy layer formed by the heat of falling through the atmosphere, was just dried glue. Pretty sick prank. 7. Maine Penny In August 1957, the Maine Penny, also called the Goddard Coin, was discovered by amateur archaeologist Guy Mellgren, who was in his second year of excavation at the Goddard archeological site on the central Maine coast. The site contained remains of an old Native American settlement and the silver coin he found was pretty confusing and definitely out of place! It was fast misidentified as a British penny from the 12th century. Twenty years later more than 30,000 items discovered at the site, including the mysterious silver coin, were sent to the Maine State Museum. In 1978 experts proclaimed it was a Norse coin, not British. It was determined that the coin was probably minted sometime between 1065 and 1080 during the reign of King Olaf III. Given that the Goddard site was occupied by a Native American settlement, the presence of a Norse coin is pretty odd. This discovery made many people believe that there was pre-Columbian European contact with America and that the Vikings may have been the first to arrive. That sounds exciting but a coin is unfortunately not enough to prove anything by itself. It could be that the mysterious silver object, currently found at the Maine State Museum, got to the Goddard Site through Viking explorers or Native American trade networks, or it is simply a hoax. But for now it remains mystery! 6. Ferrari Found in a Backyard Have you ever thought of getting a Ferrari? If you did, you might want to grab a metal detector and check your backyard for a few hours! You might find some bottle caps, some coins and if you’re really lucky even a Ferrari! You don’t think it’s possible? Think again! In 1978 two boys were playing in the yard of their new home, in Los Angeles. While digging around the yard they found – you guessed it – a Ferrari! The family called authorities and a full excavation began. It was revealed that a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS was buried in the yard. The car was wrapped in towels and rags to preserve it, meaning that whoever put it there intended to come back for it, but never made it. Why was such a car buried there you wonder? Well, after the police conducted an investigation, they found out that the car was supposed to be driven into the ocean by some thieves so that the original owners could claim the insurance on it. The criminals, however, were car lovers and simply couldn’t do it! So they buried the beautiful car hoping that they would return to get it back, but they never had the chance. If you car lovers out there are watching, don’t worry! The car was later bought by a mechanic that restored it, and it now looks better than ever.

(From a press release) $1.375 billion multi-state settlement with Standard & Poor’s over credit rating practices leading up to 2008 financial crisis includes millions for Maine (AUGUSTA) Attorney General Janet Mills has announced the largest ever one-time settlement in Maine history. The State of Maine filed papers Wednesday with the Superior Court settling the state’s complex lawsuit against Standard & Poor’s (S&P). The lawsuit, originally filed two years ago in Kennebec Superior Court, alleged that the credit ratings giant engaged in unfair and deceptive trade practices in connection with its ratings during the time leading up to the financial crisis of 2008. The settlement was negotiated in conjunction with the federal Department of Justice and 19 states and the District of Columbia. Maine will receive $21.5 million dollars for consumer protection efforts. “Holding S&P accountable for these practices tells Wall Street we will not tolerate acts that deceive investors and devastate our economy,” said Attorney General Mills. “As Attorney General I will continue to work to promote transparency and protect the integrity of our financial system. This settlement shows that banks did not act alone and that the Attorneys General of the states and of the United States together will pursue any entity that violates the public trust and stacks the deck against consumers and homeowners.” The lawsuit alleged that S&P did not fully disclose to the investing public the fact that it had a financial interest in giving some investments high ratings. While touting its ratings to investors as “independent and objective,” S&P was actually being paid for those ratings by the issuers (typically investment banks) of those complex investments such as residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) and credit default options (CDOs).

Join Dr. Richard Judd for a presentation about his work developing the newly published Historical Atlas of Maine.  Dr. Judd is co-editor with Stephen Hornsby; Michael Hermann is the cartographic designer. From the University of Maine Press: “After more than a decade of extensive research, the Historical Atlas of Maine presents in cartographic form the historical geography of Maine from the end of the last ice age to the year 2000. Organized in four chronological sections, the Atlas tells the principal stories of the many people who have lived in Maine over the past 13,000 years. The Atlas covers the history of Native peoples, European exploration and settlement, the American Revolution, Maine statehood, industrial development, and the rise of tourism and environmental awareness. To tell these stories, the Atlas presents a rich array of newly created maps, historical maps, paintings, graphs, and text. The result is not only a unique interpretation of Maine, but also a splendid visual record of the state’s history.” Dr. Judd will describe the delights and frustrations of working on the Atlas project over its fifteen-year history, show some plates from the Atlas, explain some of the new digital approaches the team took in producing the Atlas, and discuss the Atlas’s contribution to understanding the history of the State of Maine. The atlas is a 203 pages hardcover book with full-color plates, introductory texts, and full citations.  It has been featured in the Portland Press Herald and the Bangor Daily News. Co-sponsored by Schoodic Institute and the Mount Desert Island Historical Society
