At that time there existed thirty-one academies, and eighteen colleges. Of the colleges, four were in New England: Dartmouth in New Hampshire, Harvard in Massachusetts, Brown in Rhode Island, Yale in Connecticut. New York had old Kings College, the name of which had since the Revolution been changed to Columbia College. New Jersey had Rutgers for the Dutch Reformed, and Princeton for the Presbyterians. In Pennsylvania there were the University of Pennsylvania and Dickinson College. Of the nine southern colleges, five were in Maryland; they were St. John's College at Annapolis, Georgetown College, now in the District of Columbia, a college at Frederick, the Washington College at Charlestown, and a Methodist college at Abingdon. Virginia had three colleges, William and Mary, Hampden Sidney College, and Washington College, which has since become Washington and Lee University.
