Written by an unidentified author and published as a history book for Maryland students in 1881 this is not a detailed history-rather it provides a brief outline of events sprinkled with details intended to interest the student. The author states that "nothing of interest to the general reader has been omitted"- words of wisdom having "been gathered from preambles to her laws, old and new; from her ancient and modern records, her Indian treaties, and her revolutionary constitution." The text begins with a biographical sketch of Lord Baltimore, founder of the province, and includes references to leading events in almost every year from 1633 to 1881. Two-thirds of the text is devoted to the early history of the colony through the Revolutionary War. The War of 1812, education and the expansion of public transportation including canals, railroads and turnpikes are the focus of the final third.

The material is presented in chronological order with each chapter covering a stated span of years. Although there is no index the text is fully searchable and the extended chapter subheadings provide a subject index to the contents of each chapter.

A chronological list of events provides a quick lookup for the dates of events such as the establishment of the first newspaper and the first mail route, the erection of the Fairfax Stone, and the final settlement of the Virginia-Maryland boundary. Of special interest is a full-color map of the state showing the county divisions and major cities and the lists of Lord Proprietors and provincial and state governors and the dates they took office as well as a list of counties with their date of organization, population in 1890 and the name of the county seat.
