Is Maryland the capital state of us?
No, we don't have a capital state. The capital of the U.S. is Washington, D.C. which is technically a district as the D.C. is short for District of Columbia. It is not part of any state.

This was so no state would seem favored by having one of its cities be the capital of the United States.
Delaware is bordered to the south and west by Maryland, to the northeast by New Jersey, and to the north by Pennsylvania. Annapolis is the capital city in the U.S. state of Maryland. Trenton is the capital city in the U.S. state of New Jersey. Harrisburg is the capital city of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The US Capitol building is not in a state. It is in the District of Columbia, which is specifically and by design not part of any state.

While Maryland was never home of the "official" capital of the US, land from Maryland and Virginia formed the District of Columbia in July, 1790. The entire current site of Washington DC is land that was once Maryland. Unofficial Capital Congress, under the Articles of Confederation, held its sessions in Annapolis, Maryland, November 26, 1783 to June 3, 1784.
