The Maryland State Archives

Another "where is it?" story. I drove around Annapolis for awhile and stopped at a fire station for directional assistance. The Archives building was behind the fire house!

At lunch time the facility closed! I went across the street to the 7/11 and bought a hot dog, chips and Diet Coke, which I ate on a bench in front of the Archives.

This was one of my very early research trips, so inexperience contributed to my moderate success. Most of my discoveries were about Edward Prall's service with Smallwood and the 1st Maryland during the Revolution.
