Washington's Resignation

Walk Annapolis with a uniformed aide-de-camp of General George Washington. Hear the saga of General Washington's 1783 journey from New York to Annapolis as he made his way here to resign his commission as commander in chief of the Continental Army.

He could have easily declared himself king; but he did not! This most extraordinary event in our nation's history took place in Annapolis, in the Maryland State House. It makes you wonder...

This tour also takes you into the Old Senate Chamber of the Maryland State House. Built in 1772, this is the oldest state house in continuous legislative use in our nation.

You will stand in the same room where George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and other prominent founding fathers congregated on that singularly unique day.
