Main facts, current time

Time zone and Daylight Saving Time (DST) rules

Maryland , one of the Middle Atlantic states of the United States, is bounded by Delaware and the Atlantic Ocean (E), the District of Columbia (S), Virginia and West Virginia (S, W) and Pennsylvania (N).

Maryland is a state of the United States, one of the South Atlantic States (considered part of the Mid-Atlantic States and sometimes part of the Northeast).

Its U.S. postal abbreviation is MD. Its Associated Press abbreviation is Md.

Maryland was one of the thirteen colonies that revolted against British rule in the American Revolution.

A seaboard state, E Maryland is divided by Chesapeake Bay, which runs almost to the northern border; thus the region of Maryland called the Eastern Shore is separated from the main part of the state and is dominated by the bay. For the most part, the erratic course of the Potomac River separates the main part of Maryland from Virginia (to the south) and the long, narrow western handle from West Virginia (to the south and west). The District of Columbia cuts a rectangular indentation into the state just below the falls of the Potomac.

The main part of the state is divided by the fall line, which runs between the upper end of Chesapeake Bay and Washington, D.C.; to the north and west is the rolling Piedmont, rising to the Blue Ridge and to the Pennsylvania hills.

Maryland Population

Population of Maryland is 5,773,552 according to 2010 census.

Annapolis , with its well-preserved Colonial architecture and 18th-century waterfront, is the Maryland state capital; it is also the site of the U.S. Naval Academy. Baltimore , with a large percentage of the state's population, is the dominant metropolis.
