Maryland Mayflower Society to meet
ANNAPOLIS — The Society of Mayflower Descendants will hold its annual spring dinner meeting at noon May 1 at the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel in Annapolis.
Mark Croatti, who teaches politics at George Washington University and American government and foreign policy related courses at American University, the University of Maryland (College Park and Baltimore campuses), and the U. S. Naval Academy, will be the guest speaker. Croatti is the director of The Treaty of Paris Center in Annapolis. He also covers politics for Annapolis magazine and is the director of the Annapolis Forum.
His talk features the “presidents” who came before George Washington — the ones who led the nation under the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union — and the first system of “American government” from 1774 to 1789.
