Description - Somerset County, Maryland by Jason Rhodes
From its first sighting by European explorers in 1498, Somerset County on Maryland's Eastern Shore has played a significant role in America's heritage. Set on the beautiful backdrop of the Tangier Sound, its story is a tale of Native Americans, naval battles, Confederate generals, buried treasure, ornate mansions, rail travel, rags-to-riches businessmen, political leaders, skipjacks--and even a rogue elephant! In this volume, award-winning journalist Jason Rhodes details the important events and colourful characters that have made Somerset County such a well-loved place for generations of residents and visitors.
