The Port Records for Baltimore from the Revolution to the First World War are scattered and in disarray. This entry will focus on the analysis of the sources of the activities of the Port in the first half of the 19th century, beginning with the late 1830s and will encompass vessels, captains, commission merchants, and shipbuilding. Over time the intent is to link to explanations of where the records are to be found, and to provide images and transcriptions of those useful to a study of the commission merchants and their relationship to the domestic and illegal international slave trade prior to the conclusion of the Civil War in 1865.


Entrances and Clearances, 1836-1839
