Michelle and Sasha Visit Maryland State House

A visit to Maryland's State House billed as a sort of First Family summer school for 9-year-old Sasha Obama and her cousins briefly halted work inside the state capital and produced a spectacle in Annapolis on Tuesday as police pushed crowds further from the capital.

A spokesman for Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) said Michelle Obama remarked that the tour was one of a series of summer educational trips. The state's archivist showed the Obamas around the floor where George Washington resigned as commander of the Continental Army, and where Maryland's legislature still meets today. O'Malley gave Sasha and her two young cousins pewter pillboxes engraved with the state seal.
