Maine was originally inhabited by various Native American tribes, including the Abenaki, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot. European exploration of the area began in the early 1600s, with the French establishing the first permanent settlement in what is now Maine in 1604.
Maine became a state on March 15, 1820, as part of the Missouri Compromise, which aimed to maintain the balance of power between free and slave states in the United States. The state played an important role in the Civil War, with many residents serving in the Union Army and Navy.
