The middle “s” was later dropped to give the current form of the word. Midshipmen were originally young boys who were appren- ticed to sea captains to learn the trade. In the early days of the Navy, midshipmen were trained aboard ship until they were commissioned as ensigns.

Historic Annapolis, Md.

The lovely and historic city of Annapolis is the capital of , as well as the seat of Anne Arundel County. In 1694, a new capital for the Province of Maryland was laid out, replacing the original capital of St. Mary’s City. Annapolis, named to honor Queen Anne of England, was granted a royal charter as a city in 1708. Annapolis can also lay claim to having been a capital of the United States. From November 1783 to August 1784, the Continental Congress met in the State House. It was here that they accepted George Washington’s resignation as commander- in-chief and ratified the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Revolutionary War. The heart of downtown Annapolis has also been des- ignated a National Historic District. Many fine examples of colo- nial architecture, includ- ing the State House, Hammond-Harwood House, Chase-Lloyd House and the William Paca House and Gardens, are open to visitors.
