BY HENRY S. BURRAGE, D.D. State Historian. To re-create any period of the past for our own minds, to understand it as it was, unlike what went before it, unlike what came after it – this is the chief aim of history - and for this purpose one must study not only the masses of men, but also individual men, their ideas and beliefs,their enjoyments.

The history of the area comprising the U.S. state of Maine spans thousands of years, measured from the earliest human settlement, or less than two hundred, measured from the advent of U.S. statehood in The present article will concentrate on the period of European contact and after.

The origin of the name Maine is unclear. One theory is it was named after the French province of Maine. During daylight, men and women worked in their fields under protection of scouts and guards.
