Lincoln in Annapolis, February 1865


By: Rockford E. Toews,
With introduction by Dr. Edward C. Papenfuse

Published by the Maryland State Archives, 2009

This booklet, beautifully illustrated with period maps, prints, and photographs, describes President Abraham Lincolnís trip through Annapolis in February 1865 on his way a to peace conference in Hampton Roads. As Lincolnís decision to attend the conference was a last minute one, the rail line that would have taken him to the steamship wharf at the U.S. Naval Academy was clogged with supplies. On his arrival in Annapolis, the president walked from the train depot at West and Calvert Streets to the wharf. Written by local author Rockford E. Toews, with an introduction by State Archivist Dr. Edward C. Papenfuse, this booklet was made possible through grants from the Friends of the Maryland State Archives and the City of Annapolis. It includes a Civil War in Annapolis time line and endnotes. Softcover, 46 pp.

1-6 copies/$10.00 each; 7 or more copies/$6.00 each (plus shipping and handling)
