Virtual Lecture – The Present Discontents: News from 1770 Annapolis

January 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Two hundred fifty years ago, Annapolis had been Maryland’s capital for 75 of the province’s 136 years. No one knew it yet, but the countdown was already on to the end of the colonial era, the start of the Revolutionary War, and the rise of an independent American nation. Glenn E. Campbell, Senior Historian of Historic Annapolis, tells the story of Annapolis in 1770, a year when, as William Eddis wrote, “a spirit of discontent and opposition [was] universally predominant in the colonies.”

Registration required.

Cost: $15 per household for General Admission; $10 per household for HA Members and Volunteers
