    Location: Homewood Museum Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour, or $3 for the exhibition only

    The Carroll family of Maryland were passionate supporters of American freedom. Charles Carroll of Carrollton was even one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. But who were the Carrolls’ opponents, and what motivated them to remain loyal to the crown?

     

    For the first time in Maryland history, Homewood Museum presents an exhibition exclusively focused on loyalists. Highlighting a rare portrait of Colonial governor Horatio Sharpe from the Johns Hopkins University collection, this exhibition will challenge the classic narratives of American and Maryland history and encourage visitors to consider the perspectives of loyalists who ranged from governors and the urban elite to indentured servants and enslaved people.

     


    Please join us Wednesday, September 25, 5:30-7:30 p.m. for an opening night reception and talk with historian Glenn E. Campbell of Historic Annapolis. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
