Maryland crest.jpgFatti maschii, parole femine. Maryland state motto.

Maryland, my Maryland –State song (to the melody of Oh, Christmas tree!)

Oh, Maryland, my Maryland, the despot’s heel is at thy shore.
Oh, Maryland, my Maryland, his torch is at thy temple door.
Avenge the patriotic gore that flecked the streets of Baltimore,
Oh, Maryland, my Maryland, and be the battle queen of yore!
