the woods

1 Comment

These woods are located on the Eastern shore of Maryland near the town of St. Michaels. As chronicled in his Autobiography, Frederick Douglass made a harrowing run through these woods and would have passed this very spot. I was able to determine his path using his description of the event along with tax maps and tax records of the period which can be found in the "Maryland Room" of the Talbot County Library. Pretty + Historic = Pretty Historic!
