Annotation / Notes: The authors examine how Princess Anne Academy on the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland developed after 1890 as a state and federally supported land grant school. Like other land grant schools, Princess Anne Academy was neglected by state and federal agencies. This academy was an example of separate education provided for blacks which demonstrated how land grant schools were indeed separate ad unequal.

Coers, D. V. "New Light on the Composition of Ebenezer Cook's Sot-Weed Factor." American Literature 49 (January 1978): 604-06.
Annotation / Notes: Coers offers evidence to support the contention that Ebenezer Cook's satire The Sot-Weed Factor was likely written no earlier than 1702, later than the 1695 date previously ascribed. He draws upon internal references in Cook's writing to Queen Anne, not crowned monarch until 1702, and a Dorchester County Court land record to support his case. The later date would suggest that the work was based on his visit to Maryland in the 1690s, but not written until afterwards.
