  1. Maine

    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, 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 lobsters 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 survived. Patriot and British 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.

Military Dictionary and Gazetteer

  1. maine

    The largest of the New England States, and the most easterly of the United States. The first settlement was made in it at Phippsburg, in 1607, but was subsequently abandoned. Settlements from New Hampshire gradually extended themselves into it, and it was afterwards annexed to Massachusetts, as far as the Kennebec River. In the latter part of the 17th century it suffered much from the incursions of the savages and the French, many of the towns being laid waste and the inhabitants slaughtered. This state of affairs was terminated by the treaty of Utrecht in 1712. During the Revolutionary war Portland was bombarded by the British in 1775, and much property destroyed. Maine was admitted into the Union as a State in 1820. Its northern boundary formed a subject of controversy with Great Britain, which threatened a war, but was settled by compromise in 1842. During the civil war, Maine was one of the most active of the Northern States in the cause of the Union.

Examples of maine in a Sentence

  1. United States:

    We really want to urge everyone to avoid dubious sources of information and stick with trusted sources like their state health departments or the United States Maine CDC, we're in a situation where fear and misinformation can spread more quickly than this virus.

  2. Lance Dutson:

    In a certain way, Maine was really ahead of the curve on this new right-wing populism that's emerging that everyone's taking note of with Trump.

  3. Lisa Murkowski:

    Portman is the fourth Republican to push back on the plan by McConnell( R-Ky.) . Previously, West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Maine Sen. Susan Collins signaled they also oppose legislation that would repeal ObamaCare without offering a replacement. As I stated earlier this year, I can not vote to proceed to repeal the ACA [ Affordable Care Act ] without reform that allows people the choice they want, the affordability they need and the quality of care they deserve.

  4. Roy Blunt:

    Not would the witness tell us something we might not know because we just like to know ? but would the witness change the result -- and is it worth continuing to reward the bad performance of The White House to stretch this out and for not a change in the outcome?Under the Senate resolution governing the impeachment trial, the Senate will have four hours of debate on a motion about whether subpoenas for witnesses and documents are in order -- once the The White House impeachment managers and Trump's defense team make their opening arguments and after senators ask up to 16 hours of questions. After that four-hour debate, the Senate will vote on whether it should consider any motion to subpoena witnesses or documents. If there are 51 votes for that measure, a subpoena would be issued only if the Senate were to approve another motion naming the individual or documents that is backed by a majority of senators. Any witnesses would first be deposed privately before the Senate would vote on whether to make their testimony public.In addition to Lisa Murkowski, the focus has been on Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine, both of whom have signaled a willingness to hear from witnesses. Sen. Lamar Alexander, a retiring Tennessee Republican who is an institutionalist and a close McConnell ally, has not ruled out subpoenas either. But a GOP source close to the group of swing senators argues that the possibility of a drawn-out court fight will weigh heavily, including on Alexander.On Thursday, Lamar Alexander indicated Lamar Alexander had not yet made up Lamar Alexander mind about supporting subpoenas for witnesses and documents.

  5. Shelley Moore:

    Susan Collins of Maine know, I think we need to let her tell the story, i don't know, I mean, we'll just have to see where the story goes.
