- #onthisday September 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, indicating the intention to acknowledge enslaved people living in the states in rebellion as free men and women on January 1, 1863. Freedom became law in Maryland after the ratification of the Constitution of 1864. Many would claim freedom by enlisting in the Union Army or escaping to free communities in Maryland and in northern states. @harpersferrynps is hosting a living history event portraying a "contraband camp"- people who had fled slavery by escaping behind Union lines. See the event this weekend from 11 to 4 on Saturday and Sunday 9/23 and 9/24.

- The Battle of Monocacy: Reposting this about the Worthington House since it's the 153rd anniversary of the Battle of Monocacy. -- On the morning of July 9, 1864, six-year-old Glenn Worthington was ushered into the farmhouse cellar with his family and their slaves. The windows had been boarded (visible on the side and under the porch) with thick oak boards and tubs of drinking water were placed in the cellar. Young Glenn peered between the gaps of the boarded windows, witnessing horrific events as the Battle of Monocacy unfolded. -- When the fighting stopped, Glenn helped his family tend to the wounded soldiers who lay in the yard. That afternoon, Glenn was injured while trying to retrieve a bayonet from a pile of burning rifles. A coal from the fire ignited a cartridge, which exploded in his face. Glenn was burned, but fully recovered in a few weeks. -- In 1932 Glenn published the first complete account of the Battle of Monocacy. His retelling of historical events helped persuade Congress to establish Monocacy National Battlefield in 1934. #frederickmd #maryland #civilwarmd #monocacy #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #historical #history #ushistory #americanhistory #civilwarhistory #militaryhistory #military #civilwar #uscivilwar #americancivilwar #travel #travels #traveler #traveller #traveling #travelling #travelgram #travelingram #travelstagram #OTD #civilwarmaryland
