Frederick County is the crossroads of American history. Established in 1748, Maryland s largest county boasts some of the major building blocks of our country: the National Road, the C&O Canal, and the B&O Railroad. The images in this volume illustrate the lives of everyday people, from the daily chores on a rural farm to the urbane pastimes of Frederick residents. The camera s lens provides a unique opportunity to look back in time and view a devastating fire in Braddock Heights, see Confederate troops marching to battle through Frederick, and witness the inaugural run of the Frederick & Middletown Railway. Included are places and events that make Frederick County s history distinct yet truly all-American."
