The Naval War of 1812 in Annapolis
— Don't Give Up the Ship —Patriot politician and future Declaration of Independence signer Samuel Chase began building this Georgian mansion in 1769, but he couldn't afford to finish the house and sold it two years later to Edward Lloyd IV. The wealthy Eastern Shore planter hired William Buckland and later William Noke, to supervise completion of the project. Buckland designed many of the homes fine interior features including the magnificent cantilevered imperial staircase and elaborate decorative details.
