History Question #2:
Senator/Colonel Edward Baker was killed in the Battle of Balls Buff. Which Poolesville building was his body brought back to from the battle? Bonus: Who was his BBF?

Answer to History Question#1: Poolesville’s telegraph line carried the war news to Washington, DC. The New York, Philadelphia, and Boston newspapers datelined the report as coming from Poolesville. That dateline made us globally famous in the mid-1800s.

Much more to learn: Come to Poolesville in History Day, May 7, 9:30 a.m. – 4:p.m. at Whalen Commons and the center of town. The role of Poolesville in the Battle of Balls Bluff will be presented by expert guides from the Balls Bluff National Park. The Old Town Hall/ Bank Museum will host lectures on Poolesville in the Civil War from 10:20 and 2:00 p.m.
