A Brief History of Maine
- The state of Maine was originally a part of the state of Massachusetts during the colonial period of the 17th and early 18th centuries. Many colonies that were planned for settlement in Maine ultimately failed; the rugged climate, harsh winters and conflict with native tribes forced many settlers to abandon their attempts. However, some colonies survived, and the area was contested by the British in both the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Residents of Maine voted to secede from Massachusetts in 1820, and the United States would ultimately accept Maine as the 23rd state with the Missouri Compromise, which brought Maine in as a free state and Missouri as a slave state. The state contributed troops and supplies to the Union army during the American Civil War, including one of the war’s most famous commanders, Joshua Lawerence Chamberlain.
What to Expect When Shipping to or from Maine
- Transporting a vehicle to or from the state of Maine can be fairly difficult depending on where the other city (outside of Maine) happens to be. On the whole, transporting a vehicle to or from Maine is going to have to be done via I-95, because it’s the only interstate that runs into the state of Maine. As such, carriers are going to have an easier time getting to Maine if they’re running along an interstate that links to I-95. It helps that I-95 is one of the most important and most-heavily traveled corridors along the east coast; it stretches from Miami, near the southern tip of Florida, all the way up into northern Maine before terminating at the Canadian border. When transporting to or from Maine, you’ll have an easier time heading to or from one of the cities along I-95. Of course, you can transport your vehicle to or from Maine from anywhere in the U.S., though sometimes prices may be higher. During the winter prices tend to increase drastically as snow and Old Man Winter conspire to make it a difficult place to get in or out of for anyone, not just auto transporters.
