Opis: A Day in Historic and Beautiful Annapolis - Author Unknown

Excerpt from A Day in Historic and Beautiful Annapolis: With Descriptions of Places Made Famous in American History by the Revolutionary War-Still in Good Preservation in Annapolis
We left Baltimore one bright, clear morning in October, for Annapolis, "on pleasure bent," determined for one day, at least, to leave dull care, and the noises of the city behind us.
We soon passed out into the open country, which never looked lovelier to our eyes; the woods brilliant in their autumn dress of scarlet and gold, fringing meadows as green as they had been in May, and here and there long rows of tall, shapely pine trees of darkest green, standing like quiet sentinels at the edge of the woods. Above us were the cloudless skies as blue as azure - a perfect day, indeed, for a real holiday.
After passing by several small villages, and many quaint little negro cabins, with their tiny "garden patches," , we came to the "beautiful city."
The charm of this old-world town, an hours ride from Baltimore, and an hour and a half from Washington, for everyone who visits it, is hard to describe - it must be experienced to be understood.
Here we find many beautiful colonial homes of men of the most brilliant intellect that the country has ever produced, who. by their brains and courage, helped to nude our great Republic what it is today - free and independent, and all Americans owe them a debt of gratitude. These old houses, where they lived their well-rounded lives, have been almost sacredly preserved from the destroying hand of time.
The dignity and repose of those earl colonial times seem to still linger here, casting its glamour over us, until we almost forget we are not still the subjects of "good Queen Anne," for at every turn we are reminded of her reign. "Annapolis" means The City of Anne, and the church in the middle of the town was called "St. Anne's" in her honor, and to which she presented a set of bells.
