Homes for sale Frederick Md 21702 History:
Sites of historical interest
Several historic Civil War landmarks are located in and around Frederick. It was the site of a Civil War speech given by President Abraham Lincoln, which he gave at what was then a train depot at the current intersection of South and Market Streets. A plaque commemorates the speech.
At the Prospect Hall mansion on what is now Butterfly Lane, in the early morning hours of June 28, 1863, a messenger from President Abraham Lincoln arrived to inform General George Meade that he would be replacing General Joseph Hooker after the latter’s disaster at Chancellorsville in May. The Army of the Potomac, which camped at Prospect Hall for weeks prior to Gettysburg, went on to fight several major battles. The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is located downtown.
Due west along Alternate US 40, and west of Burkittsville, lie the sites of three episodes in the Battle of South Mountain: the battles of Crampton’s (September 14, 1862), Fox’s, and Turner’s gaps, where Confederate troops under Jackson and Walker unsuccessfully attempted to halt the Federal army’s advance into the Cumberland Valley. The war correspondents’ memorial can be found at Gathland State Park at Crampton’s Gap, just west of Burkittsville. The memorial to the slain Union General Jesse Reno lies on the south side of Alternate US 40, west of Middletown, just below the summit of Fox’s Gap.
The Monocacy National Battlefield lies just south of the city limits, while Antietam National Battlefield and Gettysburg National Battlefield lie approximately 35 miles (56 km) to the west and north, respectively.
The home of Barbara Fritchie, who according to legend waved the Stars and Stripes in defiance of Confederate commander Stonewall Jackson and his troops as they marched through downtown Frederick in 1862, stands as another historical site. Though the legend has been generally discredited, it was widely believed during the Civil War and was the subject of an 1864 poem by John Greenleaf Whittier, a poem that remained popular for decades. Barbara Fritchie, a significant figure in Maryland history in her own right, is buried in Frederick’s Mount Olivet Cemetery .
