Follow the Fleet

“Follow the Fleet” is a new website developed by Historic Annapolis to tell the story of war and peace in the Chesapeake Bay region from April 1814 to April 1815. It gives special attention to Maryland, its capital city, and a few people, both famous and ordinary, whose lives were changed by the events of that year. One of the individuals highlighted in “Follow the Fleet” is William ‘Rolla’ Ross, a 14-year-old fugitive slave whose exciting story is also featured in the Historic Annapolis exhibit Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake. Just as Annapolitans anxiously followed the movements of the British fleet as its ships prowled the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributary rivers 200 years ago, visitors to “Follow the Fleet” can track the dramatic military action that occurred all around the region during the final months of the War of 1812.
