    Description

    Constitution of Maryland Broadside. "To be voted on the first Wednesday of June, 1851" Single oversized sheet, 12.25" x 18.25", with text on both sides. Creases along both vertical and horizontal fold, with foxing throughout. Broadside includes the Declaration of Rights and Constitution of the State of Maryland. Once passed, the Constitution took effect on July 4th, replacing the original constitution passed in 1776. The 1851 Declaration of Rights effectively ended the position of the Church of England as the state supported religion, and granted "all persons are equally entitled to protection in their religious liberty." The 1851 Constitution would be revised in 1864, and again in 1867.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
