Margaret Brent asks Maryland’s General Assembly for “a vote … and voyce” in the colony’s politics. As justification she points to her status as a landowner and as Lord Baltimore’s attorney. In the latter role, she prevented a potential mutiny by unpaid mercenaries who had fought on behalf of Leonard Calvert during Ingle’s Rebellion.
