Lincoln in Annapolis, February 1865

By: Rockford E. Toews

State Archives, 2009

"The circumstances of Lincoln's brief visit to Annapolis in February 1865, on his way to and from a conference in Hampton Roads, Virginia, that he hoped would bring peace to a nation torn apart by the Civil War. Lincoln's decision to attend the meeting was a spur-of-the-moment one, so the rail line that would have taken him to the steamship wharf on the grounds of the US Naval Acadmy was clogged with supplies. On his arrival in Annapolis, the president walked from the train depot at West and Calvert Streets to the wharf. This beautifully illustrated booklet, author Rockford E. Toews, with an introduction by State Archivist Dr. Edward C. Papenfuse, was made possible through grants from the Friends of the Maryland State Archives and the City of Annapolis." Civil War in Annapolis time line, endnotes, softcover, 46 pp.
