The spectrum of chiral SU(N) gauge theories in two dimensions is shown to consist of free massless mesons and baryons that may be visualized as composites of free massless quarks and antiquarks. Baryons do not contribute to anomalies which are saturated by the mesons. The singular nature of the chiral limit is recognized.
