Regarding White Oak. The Annapolis Convention was a meeting in Annapolis, Maryland, to address growing commercial and trade problems in the United States under the Articles of Convention. The meeting was a failure in that only 5 states showed up. Curiously, even Maryland failed to send delegates to this meeting held in its state capital. The importance of the Annapolis Convention is that it resulted in the calling of a second convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia Convention produced the United States Constitution.
