The Role of U.S. Colored Troops in the American Civil War
"Boys been blown up and torn asunder but i am fine." These are the words of Pvt. Henry Smothers, a runaway slave from Anne Arundel County who fought for the Union during the Battle of the Crater, which took place 150 years ago on July 30, 1864. Join Professor Roger Davidson, of Coppin State University, for a lively presentation on how African Americans used the disorder caused by the Civil War to escape enslavement and enlisted in the United States Colored Troops to help bring about the end of slavery.

The Schemings of Scapin'
Join Historic Annapolis and the Annapolis Shakespeare Company in the Courtyard of Reynolds Tavern for a hilarious performance of The Schemings of Scapin. Written by French playwright Molière, and originally performed in 1671, this quick-witted comedy, recounts the story of a conniving servant, Scapin, and the two well-to-do fathers whose money Scapin swindles. With drinks and light hors d’ouvers included in the price, this will certainly be an evening full of merriment and laughter. Funds raised from this event will support the Historic Annapolis Intern Program.

Time and Location: August 6th at 7:00PM, Reynolds Tavern at 7 Church Circle
Admission: $50 per person
