1st Delaware Regiment

We are excited to have the 1st Delaware Regiment joining us at our Colonial Fair & Marketplace on September 21, 2019! Come see this impressive group of Continentals!

If you have not heard of or know well about the Delaware Continentals - please check out our main website and go to the Markers and Monuments page to see where the Regiment is honored via markers and monuments in not just Delaware but also at the battlefields that are located in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The story of the Delaware Continentals is a great one and you can learn much by visiting where they fought battles all over the original 13 colonies!

Cecil County History

CHARLESTOWN -- The first Monday in May was always a burdensome one for Charlestown property owners. On that day in spring, citizens traditionally came forward to pay the annual tax levy. But in 1813 there was a worrisome feeling in the county’s oldest municipality that had nothing to do with forking over a little hard-earned cash for the public treasury. The designated date for the collection was May 3, 1813, and the minutes of the President and Commissioners note that this state-of-affairs was occasioned by an alarm the British gave the people. . . . .

SUCCESS STORIES FOR HISTORICAL SOCIETY INNOVATORS -- “We have to show that we are relevant,” said Brent Peterson, Washington County Historical Society executive director. “We are not the old-fashioned historical society . . . That means more innovative events and exhibits on hot-button topics, such as the effects of racism on housing. The approach is paying off for county historical societies in the metro area; after struggling during the recession, most are seeing new gains in attendance and membership. . . ."

Thank you, Cecil County History, for capturing the quaint beauty of our historic town.

CHARLESTOWN -- On this Wednesday as a gentle snow fell on Cecil County, we stopped by Colonial Charlestown to look around. The town has carefully preserved its heritage, and the Historic District includes approximately 150 buildings. So with the snow adding something to the charm of this colonial town, we took a few photographs of the passing winter scene and the historic old homes.

My grandparents use to have a place on the water. Back in the late 70s early 80s they use to let us walk down and we would stay all day.
