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.
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.

Keith, Caroline H. "For Hell and a Brown Mule:" The Biography of Senator Millard E. Tydings. Lanham, MD: Madison Books, 1991.
Annotation / Notes: Millard Tydings (1890-1961) was a member of both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. A Democrat, he nevertheless clashed with Franklin Roosevelt on several occasions. His career mirrors some of the ambivalence felt by Marylanders in the first half of the 20th century as the challenges of economic depression and world war transformed the state and its conservative, southward-leaning mentality. Reflecting Maryland's distaste for extremism, Tydings was notable for his opposition to Joseph McCarthy's communist witch hunts.

Land, Aubrey C. The Dulanys of Maryland: A Biographical Study of Daniel Dulany, The Elder, and Daniel Dulany, the Younger. Baltimore: Maryland Historical Society, 1955.
Annotation / Notes: Daniel Dulany, the Elder (1685-1753) and his son Daniel Dulany , the Younger (1722-1797) were central figures in the 18th century political and social landscape of Maryland. The father, who arrived in Maryland in 1703 as an indentured servant, rose to become a wealthy official in the proprietary government. His son extended the family fortune and became a prominent defender of the British government in the debates that preceded the American Revolution. The story of the Dulanys is an important counterpoint to that of the Carrolls and others on the patriot side.
