His presentation, Monkeys in a Toy Shop: The Church of England in Colonial Maryland and the Stinking Weed that Supported It, briefly explores the establishment, politics, and maintenance of the Church of England in colonial Maryland and its uneasy yet lucrative relationship to the colony’s tobacco industry.
