You can time travel in Annapolis—that’s what we did recently on a sunny February afternoon. Our energetic tour guide “Squire Tony” teleported us through history on a Four Centuries Walking Tour, a narrated jaunt around Annapolis that was chockful of historic detail.

I had a vague memory of visiting the crypt of John Paul Jones when I was in high school, but back then I was more interested in admiring the plebes than I was in history. I’ve been to the Academy a few times since then, but never heard about the museum until I was invited on a group tour.
