The Wabanaki had been living in the region now known as Maine for approximately 13,000 years. The path to statehood was centuries in the making and tied Maine to key national events and issues: the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Missouri Compromise, and, eventually, the Civil War. And, of course we cut ties with Massachusetts. The story of Maine statehood is fascinating, echoes many issues in Maine today, and was central to the development of the United States.
