Free Maryland

The Easton Gazette, a Talbot County newspaper, printed this article that was orginally found in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The article is a congratulatory message to the citizens of Maryland as it joined the ranks of free states in the Union. It even states that the constitution was passed in spite of a secessionist push to have the Superior Court demand Governor Bradford to disallow the soldier's votes that proved the difference in the ratification of the 1864 Maryland constitution.
