Maritime Annapolis- A History of Watermen, Sails and Midshipmen
Designated an official port of entry in 1683, Annapolis has a long and intimate relationship to the Chesapeake Bay and the people who work and play on its waters. A colonial tobacco port, home to revolutionary patriots, state capital, home port for oystermen and packing houses, site of the U.S. Naval Academy, and "Sailing Capital of the World"- Annapolis has a wealth of stories and a colorful cast of characters to tell them.
