Throughout the exhibit historic documents are on display, including a rare 1775 pre-ratification printing of the Articles of Confederation; documents associated with Maryland’s signers of the Declaration of Independence Charles Carroll, Samuel Chase, Thomas Stone, and William Paca; letters written by George Washington; and other unique Revolutionary War and Founding manuscripts. At the heart of the Festival, the Treaty of Paris Proclamation is back in Maryland for the first time since 1784. A series of lecturers, short films, and activities for children and pre-teens are always scheduled.
