A 19th Century Military Landscape in Southern Maryland

Author(s): Aaron M. Levinthal

Year: 2016

Summary

The Maryland State Highway Administration's recent archaeological investigations in Charles County have helped to increase the understanding of a landscape that directly contributed to events that shaped a developing nation. The discovery and study of several War of 1812 and Civil War sites and loci, all within close proximity of one another, the port town of Benedict, and major waterborne and overland transportation corridors, has provided insights on choices made by 19th century military commanders and enlisted men when confronted with a Chesapeake landscape.
