Fall Speaker Series: Exploring the Chesapeake-Mapping the Bay

Delve into the controversy surrounding Maryland’s southern boundary with Edward Papenfuse, retired Maryland State Archivist and Commissioner of Land Patents. Drawing on research from the depositions from the Smith Islanders who liked to spin a great tale, historic maps and land surveys, and even Thomas Jefferson's interpretation of the Southern Boundary, Papenfuse will explore how this story has unfolded over time, from the Oyster Wars to the Supreme Court.
