In Annapolis, Unionist Augustus Bradford is sworn in as the 32nd Governor of Maryland

Augustus Williamson Bradford, running on the Union ticket, had defeated Democrat Benjamin Chew Howard in the recent election and took office as the 32nd governor of Maryland at a noon ceremony in Annapolis.  Bradford was a strong Unionist, although he often clashed with military officials while trying to defend his state's autonomy.  He served until January 1866.  (By John Osborne)
