Summary

Stories ofmoonshiners, the slave trade, and arson share the pages with hardworkingfarmers, heroic endeavors, and community spirit in this lively chronicle ofFrederick County history. Framed by the Potomac River to the south and theMason-Dixon Line to the north, the county is a crossroads of Maryland culturesand history. Local journalist Marie Anne Erickson sought out the oldest peopleliving in these communities and recorded their eyewitness accounts ofhistorical events as well as their personal reminiscences. Now, twenty years afterthe articles first began to be published as the “Crossroads” series for Frederick Magazine, almost all of thosepeople are gone. Their stories, however, remain. Compiled for the first time byErickson’s daughter, Ingrid Price, these fascinating essays bring readers backto the bygone days of Frederick County.
