    The State of Maine chartered the Calais Railway in 1832, one of the first railway charters to be granted by the state. Construction was very long, as the project was reorganized, abandoned, transferred to other companies, and extended several times. It was finally completed in 1898.

    1838 · The Aroostook War

    Age 13

    "An international incident referred to as the Aroostook War or ""Pork and Beans War"". The conflict resulted as part of an international boundary dispute between the United States.

    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Ally, Alli, as forms such as Johannes filius Alli (Norfolk, 1205) make clear. It may be a pet form of Alexander , Alan , Alice , or Alison , or a survival of Old Danish Alli, Old Swedish Alle, found as Alli in the Domesday Book.

    In some cases also an altered form of French Hallé (see Halle 2) or of some other similar (like-sounding) surname.

    Variant of Allee 2, a surname of French origin.
