Builders of Annapolis: Enterprise and Politics in a Colonial Capital

by Norman K. Risjord
 

In 1700, Maryland’s new capital at Annapolis was a hamlet in a wilderness whose shoreline looked, according to one new arrival, "like a forest standing in water." By the middle of the 18th century a remarkable collection of men and women had made it into "one of the most sparkling communities in British America."
