The Link Between Maine and Massachusetts

by

Maine and Massachusetts are forever linked by history, and my home state was a part of the Bay Colony until 1820. Here are some fun facts about the connection:

1. Maine and Massachusetts are just two of four states to celebrate Patriots’ Day.

2. The Portland Sea Dogs are the double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

3. Portland native Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote “Paul Revere’s Ride.”

4. The Maine Red Claws are the D-League representative of the Boston Celtics.

5. My childhood home in Portland was built in 1799 … 20 years before Maine became its own state.
