A Few Frederick Civil War Sites

5 08 2008

Earlier in June I took a long weekend that led into the Society of Civil War Historians conference in Philadelphia (read about that here, here, and here).  Prior to the conference I spent some time in Frederick, Md, and made a few Civil War related stops.  On Saturday, I made quick stops at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and Mount Olivet Cemetery.  Below are some photos I took that day – click them for larger images, click the larger images for huge images.  Enjoy!

No Monocacy? There’s also the Hessian Barracks and B&O Train station down town, both of note for the Antietam Campaign. And Prospect Hall where Meade took command of the AOP. Three major campaigns brought soldiers through the town. Counting Monocacy, I’ve cataloged 38 Civil War related markers and monuments around Frederick.

Craig,

Hey man, I only had a couple of hours, and I was lucky the wife allowed me those! And I did spend part of the time at the new Monocacy VC, but that will be covered in a separate post. Now that I have completely given up on trying to use the new WordPress photo captioning feature (it’s incredibly clumsy), I’ll be able to get that up this week, I hope.
