Maryland PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Maryland free pdf From Antietam to Assateague, from Charles County's Tobacco Road to the mountainous Green Ridge Forest, the natural and historic sites of Maryland are among the nation's richest and most diverse. First published as a project for the Works Progress Administration in 1940 and last revised for the 1976 bicentennial, this guidebook has been reorganized, rewritten and updated. Personally travelling nearly all of the 5000 miles covered, the authors combine first-hand experience with research. They tell the stories of Maryland's familiar peoples and places and of those often overlooked. Travellers can follow Piscataway Indian trails as well as John Wilkes Booth's escape route- visit the homes of Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman as well as the mansions in Annapolis and Hampton- explore the sites of the Crisfield oyster boom and Georges Creek coal rush as well as those of John Brown's raid and the battle of Antietam. The updated guide also provides information on the many museums and visitor attractions in Baltimore, Frederick, and other Maryland cities. Supplementing more than 120 archival photographs are contemporary ones by photographer Edwin Remsberg which show the immensity of change the state has undergone. Some photos literally look down the same street or road 50 or 60 years later, revealing dramatic urban development or subtle shifts in mood. There are 50 new maps by cartographer Bill Nelson, which act as a guide for every tour.
