Maryland Emancipation Sesquicentennial: 150th Anniversary of the Abolition of Slavery in Maryland Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 7:00pm

On January 1, 1863, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. But this document had no effect on slavery locally, because Maryland had not seceded from the Union. It would be left up to the political powers of Maryland to end its own slavery. That came in 1864, when the state drew up a new constitution, and formally ended the "peculiar institution." Please join us as Historic Annapolis discusses the practice of "self-emancipation" before the new constitution was accepted. Then, an archivist from the Maryland State Archives will discuss the 1864 Constitution and the emancipation of Maryland slaves 150 years ago this week.

When World War I broke out July 28, 1914, the airplane was still a novelty, and was unarmed and used primarily for recognizance.  But on October 5, 1914, French Pilot Louis Quenault opened fire on a German aircraft with a machinegun.  Warfare would now be fought in the skies over Europe, and the world would never be the same again.  Please join us as historians from the College Park Airport Museum and Air Force Historical Studies Office discuss how aircraft evolved up to the war and would attempt to dominate the skies over the trenches of Europe from 1914-1918.
