    During the early 1770s, many politically active gentlemen from both sides of the divide—including colonial Governor Robert Eden, his predecessor Horatio Sharpe, and future state governors Thomas Johnson and William Paca—were full or honorary members of Annapolis’s Homony Club. Yet the group has often been described as a mere social club, unconcerned with the political disputes raging outside its walls. In this talk celebrating the opening of Homewood’s new exhibition, Subject V. Citizen: Maryland’s Loyalists, Glenn E. Campbell of Historic Annapolis examines that dubious characterization and recounts the rancor that eventually doomed the club.
