NO. 1

(Senate Joint Resolution 3)

Joint Resolution for Commemorating the Founders of the
Republics of the Western Hemisphere.

WHEREAS,, the late years of the Eighteenth Century and
the early years of the Nineteenth Century witnessed a not-
able series of struggles for political independence in the
Western Hemisphere, led in South America by the patriot-
statesmen Simon Bolivar, Jose de San Martin, and Antonio
Jose de Sucre, among others, and in North America by Gen-
eral George Washington, beloved and respected as "the
Father of his Country"; and

WHEREAS, the State House in Annapolis was the scene of
the last great moment in the colonial era of the states com-
prising the United States of America, when General George
Washington appeared before the Congress on December 23.
1783, to resign his commission as Commander-in-Chief of the
Continental Army; and

WHEREAS,, it is proper in these troubled times, when the
very existence of the democratic process seems sometimes
endangered, to reaffirm to the world our continued and con-
tinuing faith in the ideals of democracy, and the staunch
solidarity of the American Republics in the defense of these
ideals; and

WHEREAS, it is eminently fitting to make such a reaffirm-
ance of the ideals of democracy in the City of Annapolis,
which was the capital of one of the thirteen original colonies
and which celebrates in 1949 the tricentennial of its found-
ing; now therefore be it

Resolved by the General Assembly of Maryland, That this
body cordially invites the Chairman and Members of the
Council of the Organization of American States, together
with the Secretary General and Assistant Secretary Gen-
eral and the five members of the Secretariat of the Organi-
zation of American States to be guests of honor at a Joint
Session of the General Assembly of Maryland on February
