Clarkson, Paul S., and R. Samuel Jett. Luther Martin of Maryland. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Press, 1970.
Annotation / Notes: The life of Luther Martin (1748-1826) reminds us that not all patriots of the revolutionary generation were on the winning side of each issue. Martin was a talented lawyer elected to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. During the deliberations, he found that he could not support the concept of a strong central government as crafted by his fellow delegates. He was a leader in Maryland's unsuccessful anti-federalist opposition to ratification. Later, Martin was noteworthy as one of Aaron Burr's chief defenders during the former Vice President's treason trial.

Dean, David M. "Meshach Browning: Bear Hunter of Allegany County, 1781-1859." Maryland Historical Magazine 91 (Spring 1996): 73-83.
Annotation / Notes: Meshach Browning was the author of an autobiography, Forty-Four Years of the Life of a Hunter, that might more properly be seen as a tall tale wrapped around the framework of an actual life. Browning (1751-1859) inhabited the frontier in the westernmost part of Maryland that later became Garrett County. He claimed to have killed 400 bears in his career. For those attracted to the stories of Davy Crockett or Paul Bunyon, Meshach Browning's life offers entertaining reading.

Delaplaine, Edward S. Life of Thomas Johnson. New York: F.H. Hitchcock, 1927.
Annotation / Notes: Thomas Johnson (1732-1819) is another of Maryland's nearly forgotten revolutionary leaders. Maryland's first Governor after the expulsion of its proprietary government, Johnson guided the state through a turbulent time when the revolutionary cause seemed all but lost. After the Revolution, Johnson refused all high state and federal offices, concentrating on developing the state's western lands. This classic biography was written by a respected Frederick County jurist and local historian.
Dryden, Elaine. "Thomas Archer Hays, Sr." Harford Historical Bulletin 25 (Summer 1985): 38-41.
Eddis, William. Letters from America. Edited by Aubrey C. Land. Cambridge: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1969.
Annotation / Notes: William Eddis (1738-1825) was an official in Maryland on the eve of the Revolution. His letters provide a first hand account of his impressions as the British colonies lurched toward severing their ties with the home country. Eddis was in a position to observe events at the highest levels of government and his letters have been an important primary source for scholars. General readers will find this relatively short book an interesting means for understanding the ambivalent feelings many Marylanders felt in the years preceding the final break with England.
