Erected between 1772 and 1779, the Maryland State House is the oldest state capitol still in active use as the seat of government and the only one to have served as the nation's capital, witnessing important events that brought a close to the American Revolutionary War. Recognizing the new capitol's central location and spacious and attractive accommodations, the Continental Congress met in its Senate Chamber from November 26, 1783 to August 13, 1784. It was during that time, on December 23, 1783, that George Washington appeared before Congress to resign his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. Washington's actions have been exalted as a critical step in the establishment of civil authority over military rule, so much so that a painting of the scene as it enfolded within the Maryland State House hangs in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol.
