History

History Before European colonists arrived in the area, Baltimore had been home to Paleo-Indians and Native Americans since the 10th millennium BC. Native Americans still populated the modern-day Baltimore area in the early 1600s. For example, the Susquehannock used the northern Baltimore regions as their hunting grounds, while the Piscataway tribe inhabited southern Baltimore. The city of Baltimore got its name from The 2nd Baron Baltimore, Cecil Calvert. The Baron was an Anglo-Irish member of the Irish House of Lords and was the founding proprietor of Maryland. In 1634, 140 European colonists arrived in Maryland and proceeded to settle across the state. The Susquehanna people's population then decreased due to warfare with the Europeans and diseases brought by the colonists. The town of Baltimore was founded and laid out in 1729. By 1752, the townsfolk had built 27 homes, a church, and two taverns that they frequented. The city continued to grow, and farmers started producing grain and tobacco, which they exported to the Caribbean. The townspeople developed a public market system in 1763 and created Lexington Market in 1782, where traders sold slaves. Today, Lexington Market is one of the oldest operating public markets in the United States. During 1776 and 1777, Baltimore was the capital of the United States when the Second Continental Congress met in the Henry Fite House. In 1814, the Battle of Baltimore against the British took place. This battle inspired the national anthem and the city's official emblem, the Battle Monument. President John Quincy Adams dubbed the city 'The Monumental City' in 1827 due to its unique culture, history, and skyline. The city became a major shipping and manufacturing center after the construction of the National Road. In 1820, it had a population of 60,000 and exercised economic leadership in the sawmilling, shipbuilding, and textile production industries. In 1840, the city founded the world's first dental college, the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. Being a slave state, African American people had been oppressed in Baltimore and the broader Maryland state for many years. This oppression was evident in the week-long riots of 1968 following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. This riot resulted in 11,000 of the Maryland National Guard and federal troops being sent to the city.
