It’s the summer of 1776, and the First Maryland Regiment, under the command of General William Smallwood, are preparing to leave Annapolis and say farewell to their loved ones. Several weeks later, the Regiment would demonstrate what true valor would look like at the Battle of Long Island.
Visit Pinkney Street and meet the men who would become known as the “Maryland 400” as they prepare to leave Annapolis. Talk with their families and see how they prepare supplies for the troops. Learn how the efforts and courage of these men allowed the rest of the Continental Army to escape complete destruction at the first major battle of the Revolutionary War.
This event is presented free of charge, but we invite you to consider a $5 donation to support our educational programs, exhibits, and outreach.
