Born in 1745, to Colonel Thomas Lee and Christiana Sim Lee, Thomas Sim Lee was active and influential in Maryland politics during the early, formative years of the United States. Over the course of a public career that spanned four decades, Thomas Sim Lee served as Maryland's governor twice, represented Maryland in the Continental Congress, and held a variety of other positions. His private life and public career, as well as that of his wife Mary Digges Lee, and their descendants, are documented and preserved in the collections of the Maryland State Archives. This is an online version of an exhibit displayed at the Archives in 2008, to highlight some of these places.
