See the Enemy Nearly All Round Us
The War of 1812 came right to us. British warships sailed up the Chesapeake and aimed their guns toward Annapolis. In the new exhibit, The Enemy Nearly All Round Us Annapolis, you’ll learn how Maryland State Government protected citizens from attack; how the British made life difficult for Marylanders; and how enslaved African Americans made daring escapes in the midst of war.
You’re visiting America’s oldest continually working state house, so see it all on a self-guided tour.
