With fortunes that have ebbed and flowed with the tides, Annapolis
has graced the banks of the Severn River and the Chesapeake Bay
since the seventeenth century. Generations have worked the docks,
sailed its waters and hunted for Chesapeake Gold--oysters--even as
the city became home to a proud military tradition in the United
States Naval Academy. Local author Rosemary F. Williams presents a
vivid image of Annapolis with tales of violent skirmishes between
the dashing Captain Waddell and crews of outlaw oyster poachers,
the crabbing rage of the twentieth century, feisty shipwright
Benjamin Sallier and the city's Golden Age of Sailing. Williams's
fluid prose and stunning vintage images chronicle the maritime
history of this capital city and reveal its residents' deep
connection to the ever-shifting waters.
