Road to Thomas Farm

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 1 February 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

The farm was established in 1780 and consisted of 261 acres. It was bought in 1860 by Christian K. Thomas, a Baltimore dry goods merchant. Some of the heaviest fighting during the Battle of Monocacy took place on this farm in 1864. During the Civil War, the Battle of Monocacy was significant in that it prevented the Confederate troops from marching on to Washington, D.C.

Long is the road...
Et chargée d'Histoire... C'est une belle perspective... Maintenant que nous sommes en période de paix, ce doit être agéable de s'y promener à l'ombre quand les feuilles auront repoussé...

What an excellent PoV which adds an incredible amount of depth to this composition!! Thank you for the background information. Some of it sounds familiar from what I read in "Alexander Hamilton".
