The place which is now Annapolis, the capital of Maryland, was first settled by ten Puritan families from Virginia in 1649, and was given the name of the Town of Greenbury. It received its present name in 1695, having been made capital of the crown colony of Maryland a 5 year previously, was chartered by Queen Anne in 1708 and incorporated as a city in 1796. For a period of a little less than nine months, from November 26, 1783, it was made the temporary capital of the nation and it was there, on January 14, 1784, that the peace treaty with England was signed, ending the Revolutionary War. The city, 10 which retains its authentic colonial character, is probably best known today as the home of the United States Naval Academy. Much of its present layout dates from 1696, its radiating streets and interconnecting circles being notably similar to the plans by Sir Christopher Wren and John Evelyn for the rebuilding of London after 15 the Great Fire of 1666.
