1949 3¢ Annapolis Tercentennary

Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Rotary Press
Perforations:  11 x 10 ½

U.S. #984 was issued to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the founding of Annapolis, Maryland. Established by Puritan settlers who were exiled from Virginia in 1649, the location was first named Providence. 
 
The stamp’s design, which pictures a map of the region, had the words “First Settlement – Providence” to indicate its location. But since the term “Providence” was no longer used in any form, “Original Settlement” was used instead. The Puritans are represented on the stamp in the image of a boat headed to the new settlement. Also shown on the stamp is the coat of arms of Cecilius Calvert, Lord Baltimore – the first proprietor of the Maryland colony. 
 
Annapolis has since become the capital of Maryland. The city also was the temporary capital of the newly formed United States of America, from 1783 to 1784. The city is home to the U.S. Naval Academy, as well as St. John’s College – founded in 1696 and the third-oldest college in the United States.
