Two complete and authentic issues of The Federal Gazette, Baltimore, July 19th & December 15, 1796, disbound, 4pp., rag paper, VG. Each issue is loaded with Slave Ads.

On November 1, 1864, after a year-long debate, a state referendum was put forth on the slavery question: although tied to the larger referendum on changes to the state constitution, the slavery component was extremely well known and hotly debated. The citizens of Maryland voted to abolish slavery, but only by a 1,000 vote margin, as the Southern part of the state was heavily dependent on the slave economy.
