Annotation / Notes: Visitors to Annapolis mostly associate William Paca (1740-1799) with a handsome house and gardens restored to their original glory. Paca hailed from Harford County, owned extensive property on the Eastern Shore, but moved to Annapolis and emerged as a patriotic leader during the revolutionary era. Elected Governor in 1782, Paca headed a state government that witnessed the final victory over the British. This short biography provides a good introduction to the man and his era.
