About Charles Alexander Warfield, Sr.

A Patriot of the American Revolution for MARYLAND with the rank of FIRST MAJOR. DAR Ancestor # A120934

"One of the first Warfields to become well-known was Dr. Charles Alexander Warfield, who led a group from what is now Howard County (part of Anne Arundel County at the time) to Annapolis in 1774 to protest the arrival of a ship full of tea. Colonists had put an embargo on tea in protest of British taxes, and angry rebels demanded that the ship's owner, Anthony Stewart, burn the ship or be hanged, Keenan said.

Stewart chose to save his life. A 1911 oil painting called The Burning of the Peggy Stewart, on loan to the exhibit from the Daughters of the American Revolution chapter in Annapolis, depicts Stewart on his ship with a torch as Charles Warfield and several other men watch from a dinghy."
