Maryland Voices of the Civil War Maryland Voices of the Civil War
In Maryland Voices of the Civil War, historian Charles W. Mitchell tells the compelling story of how Maryland African Americans escaped from slavery and fought for the Union and their freedom alongside white soldiers. He reinforces the notion that Maryland's Southern sympathies―while genuine―never seriously threatened to bring about a Confederate Maryland. He draws upon hundreds of letters, diaries, and period newspapers―many previously unpublished―to portray the passions of a wide variety of people―merchants, slaves, soldiers, politicians, freedmen, women, clergy, slave owners, civic leaders, and children―caught in the emotional vise of war. 
 
Maryland Voices of the Civil War illuminates the human complexities of the Civil War era and the political realignment that enabled Marylanders to abolish slavery in their state before the end of the war.
 
Mr. Mitchell won the 2009 Founders Award from the American Civil War Museum for this compelling account of people caught up in the effects on the four border slave states that remained loyal to the Union.

Our Dear-Bought Liberty: Catholics and Religious Toleration in  Early America Our Dear-Bought Liberty: Catholics and Religious Toleration in Early America
Based on ground-breaking research, Prof Michael Breidenbach of Ave Maria University places the Calverts and St Mary's County at the source of Religious Liberty in America. He details the physical, legal, and religious journey of Maryland Catholics and how they emphasized their church’s own traditions—rather than Enlightenment liberalism—to secure religious liberty which enabled their assimilation into American life. His research encourages us to revise our sense of who the American founders were.
 
A video recording of Prof Breidenbach's lecture on his book can be found on our Videos peage.

Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay: From the Colonial Period to the Oyster Wars Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay: From the Colonial Period to the Oyster Wars
Published in February 2020, Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay: From the Colonial Era to the Oyster Wars tells of the golden age of piracy, including Confederate privateers and oyster pirates. The maritime communities of the Chesapeake Bay are intimately tied to a fascinating history of intrigue, plunder and illicit commerce raiding. Dr Jamie Goodall, staff historian with the U.S. Army Center of Military History in Washington, DC, introduces infamous men like Edward "Blackbeard" Teach and "Black Sam" Bellamy, as well as lesser-known local figures like Gus Price and Berkeley Muse, whose tales of piracy are legendary from the harbor of Baltimore to the shores of Cape Charles.
