The Importance of Knowing Annapolis

(p.1) Chapter 1 The Importance of Knowing Annapolis
The Archaeology of Liberty in an American Capital

Mark P. Leone

University of California Press

This chapter, which introduces the city of Annapolis, a city that is deeply connected to the American Revolution and home to the United States Naval Academy, begins with a brief description of the city, and then examines the various identities normally associated with it. It shows Annapolis as a baroque city, which can be seen in the layout of the city and buildings that date back to the eighteenth century, and studies the way the wealthy and the poor, the powerful and the powerless, were managed without substantial violence. The chapter also discusses the population of Annapolis, the historical preservation of the city, and the ideology and theory presented in this book.

Keywords:   Annapolis, American Revolution, U.S. Naval Academy, identities, baroque city, wealthy and poor, population, historical preservation, ideology
