Leonard Calvert was a quiet boy who grew up in England. When he was grown, Leonard went to Newfoundland with his father, George Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore, and fought French privateers. When his father died, Cecil became the second Lord Baltimore, and led the first colonists to settle in Maryland. Leonard was just twenty-seven-years old when he became Maryland's first governor. He faced fierce Indians, unfriendly Virginia fur traders, and plundering pirates who wanted to chase him out of Maryland and take the colony away from the Calverts. Middle grades?ges 10-13.
