July 20th, 2011
Annapolis, Maryland is a small city, best known, perhaps, as the home of the United States Naval Academy. But its role in American history is large, indeed larger than many people realize.

It was, briefly, the capital of the United States, and it’s where a bold move by George Washington one December day set America on the course it has followed ever since.
