More than 9,000 homes in south eastern Frederick County...Monrovia to New Market?! REALLY?!!! I've been posting on growth and its impact on our quality of life a couple times over the past several days. RALE has been fighting for us for more than 18 months! Jan Gardner NEVER would have let this happen! This clip is of Steve McKay, president of RALE and Jan Gardner, candidate for County Executive being interviewed by George Wenschhof on 'Talking Maryland Politics' about this HOT topic! I am sharing this interview with you for two reasons...one, it is a VERY important topic that affects ALL of us, no matter where we live...and it is an election year and I believe folks need to know the issues and the candidates! And two, information is power! Information is important to the democratic process! Much has change since my time of advocacy in the 90s. We no longer have 'Pressing Issues' with Michael O'Connor to inform us on local issues on cable, and we no longer have the Gazette as a second paper here in o ...
Shanholtzer history and allied family roots of Hampshire County, W. Va. and Frederick County, Va
Ashby Family The name of Ashby is found in the early records of the colony of Virginia, but the direct pedigree of the family in this county has been traced only from the beginning of the eighteenth century. . The immediate ancestor of our Virginia branch of the Ashby family, was Captain Thomas Ashby, who located about 1700 , in what is now Fauquier County, and removed later into the Shenandoah Valley. He died in 1752, his will being probated in Frederick County, Virginia. His landed estate was quite large and was divided amongst the following children: Robert Ashby born 1715 in Virginia. Robert Ashby died 27 February,1792 in Fauquier County Virginia. Thomas Ashby born 1771 in Virginia died 1797. John Ashby born 1719 in Fauquier county, Virginia died 1789 in Winchester, Fauquier, Virginia. Elizabeth Ashby born 1721 in Virginia. Benjamin Ashby born 1723 in Stafford county, Virginia died November 1779 in Hampshire County Virginia. Henry Ashby born 1725 Hampshire County, Virginia, died 1798 in Ha ...
Posted: March 22, 2014 By MELISSA BOUGHTON, THe Winchester Star WINCHESTER — It’s been more than a year since 18-year-old Hunter Crane died, but one of his dreams will soon be realized. An episode of “Fly Rod Chronicles with Curtis Fleming,” scheduled to air next week on the Outdoor Channel, will feature footage and interviews with Hunter’s friends and family, memorializing the avid hunter and the community that rallied around his family after his death. Hunter, a James Wood High School senior, died in a single-vehicle crash near Capon Bridge, W.Va., on Jan. 15, 2013. “He and his daddy spent many hours watching hunting and fishing shows and always said, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be so cool to be on one of those shows,’” Tina Crane said. “In the most terrible of circumstances, [Fleming] made Hunter’s dream come true.” The episode was filmed on April 20 during a *** shooting and fly-fishing rodeo at Landfall Farms — owned by Lowell Henderson and Dr. Audi Wynn — in Frederick County.

Our 200 Year History Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, the second-oldest Catholic theologate in the United States, opened its doors in 1808. Fr. John DuBois, the Mount’s founder and a refugee from the French revolution, arrived in the United States in 1791 bearing a letter of introduction from Lafayette, whose wife he had once counted among his parishioners. Fr. DuBois made the acquaintance of many of the Founding Fathers of the Republic, and offered his services to the first Catholic bishop in the United States, the Most Reverend John Carroll of Baltimore. His mission territory extended through central Maryland and the Blue Ridge country. Shortly after founding St. John’s Church in Frederick, Maryland, the circuit-riding priest resolved to purchase for himself a small tract of land in northern Frederick County, not far from the Pennsylvania border, where earlier Catholic colonists from southern Maryland had christened the adjacent summit “Mount St. Mary.” The missionary also desired to affiliate himse ...
Some facts about the winter we have suffered through this year: In some parts of Frederick County, such as where I live, the kids have not had a full week of school since mid-December, between holidays, snow days, and days when it was just too *** cold to send your kids to stand at the bus stop. There have been 4 deaths in Maryland from heart attacks while shoveling heavy snow, three 50-something men and one 64-year-old woman. It has snowed more than 30 times since mid-November, totaling 2 feet of snow around DC and more than 4½ feet of it here on the mountain over the season. Today, March 4, the ground is still covered after the latest "monster" storm. We have had 4 months of bitterly cold winter and are entering the fifth. Next Saturday we will finally approach the average temperature for one day, but then it will drop to ten degrees below average again. What can I say but Gaaah! Make it stop!!

Action Alert: Minimum Wage The Maryland General Assembly is considering several bills that would increase the minimum wage in Maryland. The House Economic Matters and Senate Finance Committees will hold hearings for these bills next week. Raising the minimum wage would help increase wages for direct support professionals who provide critical supports to people with developmental disabilities, IF the state provides the funding needed to do so. Increasing the minimum wage for Maryland without additional funding from the Developmental Disabilities Administration will make many direct support positions minimum wage. The Arc of Frederick County strongly believes that direct support positions should NOT be minimum wage jobs. Direct support professionals provide critical support to people with developmental disabilities and meet many requirements in order to assist people to live and work in the Frederick community. Help us by asking members of the House Economic Matters Committee and Senate Finance Committe ...
James Beckwourth James Pierson Beckwourth (April 6, 1798 Frederick County, Virginia – October 29, 1866, Denver) was an American mountain man, fur trader, and explorer. An African American born into slavery in Virginia, he was freed by his father (and master) and apprenticed to a blacksmith;; later he moved to the American West. As a fur trapper, he lived with the Crow for years. He is credited with the discovery of Beckwourth Pass through the Sierra Nevada (U.S.) Mountains between present-day Reno, Nevada and Portola, California during the California Gold Rush years, and improved the Beckwourth Trail, which thousands of settlers followed to central California. He narrated his life story to Thomas D. Bonner, an itinerant justice of the peace. The book was published in New York and London in 1856 as The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckwourth: Mountaineer, Scout and Pioneer, and Chief of the Crow Nation of Indians. A translation was published in France in 1860. Early historians of the Old West origina ...
Francis Scott Key (Aug 1, 1779 – Jan 11, 1843) American lawyer, author, and amateur poet, from Georgetown, who wrote the lyrics to the United States' national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner".

His great-grandparents on his father's side were Philip Key and Susanna Barton Gardiner, both of whom were born in London and immigrated to Maryland in 1726. He studied law at St. John's College, Annapolis, Maryland and also learned under his uncle Philip Barton Key. From 1818 until his death in 1843, Key was associated with the American Bible Society. Key was a founding member and active leader of the American Colonization Society, the primary goal of which was to send free African-Americans back to Africa. "The Star-Spangled Banner"[ed ...

Concord mod of Jimmy Kendle, Up In Smoke John Deere of Steve Beckley, and the IH's Internationally Known and Smokin Red of Ben Flaherty as well as the Ammons family who pull Redlined Harvester all call Hagerstown, Maryland home. Hagerstown is a city in Washington County, Maryland. It is the county seat of Washington County, and by many definitions, the largest city in a region known as Western Maryland (if you exclude Frederick County from Western Maryland). The population of Hagerstown city proper at the 2010 census was 39,662, and the population of the Hagerstown-Martinsburg Metropolitan Area (extending into West Virginia) was 269,140. Hagerstown ranks as Maryland's sixth largest city Hagerstown has a distinct topography, formed by stone ridges running from northeast to southwest through the center of town. Geography accordingly bounds its neighborhoods. These ridges consist of upper Stonehenge limestone. Many of the older buildings were built from this stone, which is easily quarried and dressed onsite ...
* * TODAY IN HISTORY * * Today is Saturday, Nov. 23, the 327th day of 2013. There are just 38 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Nov. 23, 1936, Life, the photojournalism magazine created by Henry R. Luce (loos), was first published. On this date: In 1765, Frederick County, Md. became the first colonial entity to repudiate the British Stamp Act. In 1804, the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce (puhrs), was born in Hillsboro, N.H. In 1889, the first jukebox made its debut in San Francisco, at the Palais Royale Saloon. In 1903, Enrico Caruso made his American debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, appearing in "Rigoletto." In 1910, American-born physician Hawley Harvey Crippen was hanged at Pentonville Prison in London for murdering his wife, Cora. (Crippen's mistress, Ethel Le Neve, was acquitted in a separate trial of being an accessory.) In 1943, during World War II, U.S. forces seized control of Tarawa and Makin (MAH'-kihn) atolls from the Japanese. In 19 ...

The main existing Indian Tribe near Frederick seems to be the Piscataway which are MD State recognized (finally), but as is often the case not Federally recognized.   The Piscataway are a sub-tribe of the Conoy Tribe, one of the most prominent historic tribes of the Chesapeake Bay area. Their Algonquin dialect evolved from Nanticoke, having established roots here over 10,000 years ago as hunters and gatherers. They lived very much like the Potowomac Tribe, along the Potomac River; by 800 AD they grew maize, beans, squash, and pumpkins. Today there are 2 main Piscataway groups in Southern MD: The Nation (Chief Tayak), and The Tribe (Confederacy and Cedarville Band). They have no reservation land.   2010: Frederick County had 800+ Residents that considered themselves Native American; Maryland Indians total: 25,000+ of which 8,000+ are Piscataway. Together with dramatic decreases in population due to disease, when American Indian reservations were dissolved by the Maryland Colony in the eighteenth century, ...

Call To Action: Make your voice heard in the Frederick County Sheriff's accreditation process with CALEA. Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) 13575 Heathcote Boulevard Suite 320 Gainesville, Virginia, 20155 Dear Assessment Team, In advance of your audit of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, I write to highlight my concern regarding that office's handling of Robert Ethan Saylor's homicide at the hands of three off-duty Frederick County deputies. On January 12, 2013, Mr. Saylor re-entered a movie theater without purchasing another ticket for a showing of Zero Dark Thirty. Sheriff's deputies Lt. Scott Jewell, Sgt. Rich Rochford and Deputy First Class James Harris were moonlighting as mall security that night and were called as such to attend to the situation. The three attempted to forcibly remove Mr.Saylor from the theater; confusion ensued as the guards dragged Mr. Saylor out of his seat. Soon thereafter, Saylor's companion returned to the theater and pleaded with ...
Flash Flood in USA on Tuesday Description Drenching rains Monday closed roads and schools in Culpeper County and forced the evacuation of about 50 people from a Culpeper motel, where the water reached chest-high in some rooms, officials said. Calls flooded E-911 starting about 1 a.m., said Tom Williams, director of Culpeper County Emergency Services. By 1:20 a.m., county rescue crews were wading through floodwaters around the Sleepy Hollow Motel. About 5.5 inches of rain fell starting Sunday. No one was hurt, Williams said. Two to three inches fell Monday in the Charlottesville area, flooding some streets in Albemarle and Greene counties. More than 2.5 inches fell near the Charlottesville Albemarle Airport and in localized spots from Greene County to Esmont, officials said. Heavy rains overnight caused flash floods in some areas and resulted in flash-flood warnings until about 6 a.m. Tornado and flood watches remained in effect most of the day. A tornado was reported by radar signal near Hampden-Sydney Co ...

This morning, I came upon this information about my 4th great grandfather, William Wilson. William was born, 17 Apr 1755, in Frederick County, Maryland. He died ,6 Dec 1821, in Richland, Fairfield Co., Ohio. Taken from "Pioneer Period & Pionner People of Fairfield County, Ohio" by C. M. L. Wiseman 1901 In the spring of 1800, William Wilson, of Bedford county, Pennsylvania, in company with his three sons, James, William and Michael, started for the Ohio country - with a pack horse to carry their their camp equipage. They arrived at Rushcreek on the 16th day of May, and camped near the great spring now owned by Mrs. William Friend. They spent the summer here, and made some progress in clearing land, but were too late to raise a crop of corn. In the fall William Wilson left his boys in camp and returned to Pennsylvania for the remainder of his family. He sold his property and started for Ohio, arriving at his camp on Rushcreek on the 27th of November. At Zanesvlle they crossed the river on a ferry boat wit . ...

10 Basics about Frederick craft beer... 10. Before Flying Dog bought the brewery in Frederick, it was Frederick Brewing Company. 9. When still the Frederick Brewing Company, the brewery was contracted to brew and bottle Tupper's Hop Pocket Ale, Maryland's oldest craft beer, dating back over 30 years. 8. The parent company of Brewer's Alley also owns Acacia, Isabella's, and the recently opened Ayse. 7. Other beers that were brewed under the roof now occupied by Flying Dog include Brewer's Alley beers, Clay Pipe Brewing Company, and Wild Goose. 6. Barley and Hops brewmaster Larry Pomerantz once brewed for Flying Dog. 5. Frederick County is home to the first brewery in the state licensed under the 2012 farmhouse brewery license. 4. Of the soon to be five brewmasters in the county, all started brewing as homebrewers. 3. The Flying Barrel's old downtown location was Frederick Brewing Company's original location. 2.

On January 14, 2013, a young man with Down Syndrome went with his companion to see Zero Dark Thirty at the Regal Cinema in Frederick, MD. At the end of the movie, apparently because he wanted to see it again, he refused to get out of his seat. A Regal employee, rather than allowing him to stay and dealing with the situation... later with his parents and the companion, called not one, not two, but three off duty Frederick County police officers who were working security for the theater at the time. According to published reports, when the officers/ security guards asked him to leave, he mouthed off at them and “resisted arrest”. Those of you who know my son Landon can visualize what this would look like. In response, the officers wrestled him to the ground where he asphyxiated in handcuffs. The handcuffs were removed and EMS called and according to the police news release he later died at hospital. I don’t know how that reconciles with the coroner’s finding of asphyxiation which I thought was prett ...

While I was transcribing, I was struck by one long entry concerning the Will of John McAllister whose slaves were brought from Tennessee to Gallatin County, Illinois. In his will, McAllister emancipates all 62 of his former slaves: THE WILL OF JOHN McALLISTER. (Because of its interest, the entire will has been included. It shows the concern of the master for his slaves and their ability to care for themselves. Due to Tennessee law, the slaves were unable to remain in Tennessee, and 62 persons were brought at one time to Gallatin County, Illinois.

Charles Carroll of Carrollton (1737–1832) Maryland Delegation Signatory of the Declaration of Independence  Religious Affiliation: Roman Catholic    Charles Carroll, the Revolutionary patriot, was born on 20 September, 1737. When he was only eight years of age, his father, who was a Roman Catholic, took him to France, and entered him as a student in the Jesuit College at St. Omer's. There he remained six years, and then went to another Jesuit seminary of learning, at Rheims. After remaining there one year, he entered the College of Louis le Grand, where he graduated at the age of 17, and then commenced the study of law at Bourges.   Carroll sailed home in 1765 at the age of 28, and built a home at Carrollton Manor, a 10,000-acre estate in Frederick County newly deeded to him by his father. At that time, he added "Carrollton" to his name to distinguish himself from relatives of the same name.   As one of the wealthiest men in America, Charles Carroll of Carrollton risked ...

My great grandfather (moms’ side) tilled the land and harvested the wheat of Frederick County. He provided countless blessings from that land right beside Fort Detrick. The base not as we know it today and much smaller. He supplied wheat for the U.S. Armed Forces in WWII, and continued to grow wheat after the war. One day the federal government told my great grandfather that he was growing too much wheat and had to chop it down and get rid of it. He replied by saying he would only use the extra wheat to feed is livestock and animals. This was still not good enough for the government. So they came in and took all the wheat. Both of my granddads served as well as my father. We do not serve or fight for a government to take away our property that we created with our own sweat and blood. We serve to fight for the brother beside us and the right to property, life, and liberty. Can we honestly say we live in a time where the federal government has become more and more tyrannical? I SAY YES! Since 2001 over 5 ...

Jost Hite (1685 - 1761) is your 9th great grandfather Jost Hite and Winchester (Frederick County) Hite's footprint is 'significant' By Rebecca Layne WINCHESTER — One of the first settlers of Frederick County was German immigrant Jost Hite, who brought 16 families with him from Pennsylvania in the spring of 1732. “Jost Hite was a big deal,” said Warren Hofstra, Shenandoah University’s Stewart Bell Professor of History. “He’s significant to the early settlement of the region and the recruitment of the large number of settlers from Pennsylvania.” The historical marker commemorating Hite’s significant footprint in the area is titled “Jost Hite and Winchester” and stands at Berryville Pike (Va. 7) and Greenwood Road. The settlers — Presbyterians, Protestants, and Mennonites of German and Scots-Irish descent — made their homes on the banks of Crooked Run and Opequon, Hogue, and Cedar creeks. Hite and his fellow settlers were farmers of grain, wheat, rye, corn, and livestock. They didn’ ...

The president earns a $400,000 annual salary, along with a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment. The most recent raise in salary was approved by Congress and President Bill Clinton in 1999 and went into effect in 2001. The White House in Washington, D.C. serves as the official place of residence for the president; he is entitled to use its staff and facilities, including medical care, recreation, housekeeping, and security services. The government pays for state dinners and other official functions, but the president pays for dry cleaning and food that he, his family, and personal guests consume; the high food bill often amazes new residents. Naval Support Facility Thurmont, popularly known as Camp David, is a mountain-based military camp in Frederick County, Maryland used as a country retreat and for high alert protection of the president and his guests.

In February of 1776 Solomon entered the service of the State of Virginia in the Revolutionary War, ten miles west of Ingles Ferry on the New River, in what is now Montgomery County, Virginia. Ingles Ferry (Radford) was an important station on the Great Road down the Shenandoah Valley, which was bringing numerous immigrants from Pennsylvania and Virginia into Tennessee, and on to Kentucky. As a 21 year old he was probably pioneering on his own, his family having remained in Frederick County. Virginia. He entered the 8th Virginia Regiment under Captain James Knox for a period of two years. They marched to Williamsburg, Virginia, to join Captain Henry Lee (known as "Light Horse Harry", and father of the Civil War General Robert E. Lee). Lee marched the troops through Halifax, North Carolina, and Charleston, South Carolina, to Savannah, Georgia. There being a necessity for troops in the north* they were taken to Philadelphia, then marched to Middlebrook, New Jersey, to join the main army. Solomon was there se ...
on the weather events of 2012, we look back to the Severe Thunderstorm that impacted this area on July 4th. This started off as a simple little storm coming out of western Maryland producing very frequent lightning and some hail in Frostburg and Westernport. After this, it started making a track towards eastern West Virginia and then Frederick County. The storm continued to be severe thunderstorm warned and by the time it hit Frederick County, all the firework shows were about to get underway or some were underway. This made for some great pictures and video clips. After 50mph gusts and very frequent lightning, the storm left as quickly as it came. Tomorrow, we look at a severe weather event that did not impact just the county, but the area as a whole. Any guesses?
8:55 AM 12/26 (Forecaster Greg)- There have been some changes to the advisories posted. The NWS has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY until 1pm for the following: Baltimore, Harford, Howard, Anne Arundel, Montgomery Counties, and Baltimore City. Hazardous travel conditions will continue through the morning hours as sleet is now expected to fall for a longer period of time. This solution was outline in our SURPRISE FACTOR in our overview last night. The WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Carroll and Frederick County continues until 6am tomorrow morning. We are now expecting heavier ice accumulations (up to .2") by late this afternoon in areas N&W of the city. Eventually the snow will change to freezing rain, which will cause this ice accumulation. By evening we may see it changeover to plain rain, but we have a long way to go before that happens. Please use extreme caution and avoid driving if possible.
9:45 AM 12/25 (Forecaster Greg)- Okay, who wished for more winter AFTER we gave you all some snow on Christmas Eve? Well your Christmas wish is about to come true... but you have to wait until Wednesday morning. Recent model trends have created a colder solution for our storm arriving early tomorrow morning. Most areas in Central MD should see a period of snow/sleet before changing to rain by mid-morning. This will make for a slick commute for most of the area tomorrow morning, but those in the counties N&W of Baltimore could have a bigger problem on their hands. Due to the snow on the ground, our temperatures will likely stay steady in the 30s today for those in Carroll and Frederick counties. Lows overnight will get into the mid 20s, which will provide enough cold air to lay down at least another coating of snow by sunrise Wednesday morning. The concerning part is after sunrise though, where many areas N&W of the city could start to see a period of freezing rain. Frederick County is already under a ...

County Public Schools Lead State: First Release of “School Progress Index” Data Shows FCPS on Top Frederick County Public Schools ranks first in the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) recently released 2012 accountability data. These results are the first that Maryland has issued under its new school accountability model, which replaces provisions of the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act. The new system includes overall student performance, closing achievement gaps, student growth and college and career preparation. In the new model, Maryland is measuring school and school district performance using a tool called the School Progress Index (SPI). Although the specific details and calculations involved in the state’s SPI model are complex, the first results issued by the state are clear: Frederick County public schools are outperforming their counterparts statewide. Schools and districts with a ratio of 1.0 or higher met the new performance targets, with Frederick earning the highest score of 1 ...

The Middletown Volunteers would like to take a moment to thank Lisa Lessin for her dedication to supporting volunteers in Frederick County. She has been a great help to the Middletown crew.

"I said, 'Well, you can have one of mine.' She just kind of looked at me, and she said, 'Really, don't you want to think about it,' and I said, 'Yeah, I just did,'" said Hanberry, who works as CEO of the Mental Health Association of Frederick County.
So one of the reasons I shared the previous post is because I'd like to announce my December giveaway! After photographing those women and becoming inspired by their bravery, beauty and vulnerability, I realized that we as women don't get to feel that way often. Some of the women that I photographed have special needs children (as well as myself) and I could tell that this kind of session was a gift to them...to unleash their playful-sexy side, their funny side...their authentic beautiful selves. I'd love to give this to one lucky winner of my December giveaway! I'm calling it a "Just Be" session. It can be "boudoir," "Vogue the Dress" (where you wear your wedding gown and vogue it up with funky shoes, bold jewelry, etc.), "girlfriends day out," or just you doing something you love. You will get one-two hours (depending on type of session you want) and the artistically-edited, high-res digital files. You also get to suggest the date...good only for 2013. The location will be in Frederick County, MD. This ...

Freshman Achieves Perfect AP Score One of 17 Worldwide! Frederick County Public Schools’ sophomore Kundan Chintamaneni is one of 17 worldwide to achieve a perfect Advanced Placement exam score. He earned every point possible on the Calculus BC exam in spring 2012 when he was a freshman. Kundan attends Middletown High, where math teacher Matt Schmidt taught his AP Calculus class. Kundan began kindergarten at Middletown Elementary in 2003, attended the Gifted and Talented magnet program at North Frederick Elementary and then Middletown Middle before moving up to Middletown High School.

My Frederick area friends: This Sunday I am organizing and playing a benefit for the The Arc of Frederick County in light of the Jeanne Bussard Center closing this past summer. I've taught music classes at the Arc for several years and I personally know of students who were affected by the Jeanne Bussard closing and the services that were lost. With it all being so close to home I wanted to do something to help out the Arc, which is trying to pick up the slack after the center's closing. Valley Grill has agreed to donate 20% of all proceeds from the evening to the Arc, and there will also be a silent auction, door prizes, 50-50, along with live acoustic music that I will be providing with a special guest or two. It's going to be a great event to help folks and an organization that is near and dear to me, and a way for everyone in the community to really make a big difference in their own back yard here during the holiday season.

Voter Lookup: voter can check their official registered voter information by going to this website. The 2012 General Presidential official ballot counts should be available on November 29. Many voters were affected by the redistricted Congressional map of Maryland that was proposed by Governor Martin O'Malley and approved by the General Assembly. District 8 extends through much of Frederick County to the Pennsylvania border, but excludes the part of Frederick County, Frederick City. Because some voters went to their old polling site to vote, they had to vote on provisional ballots. The provisional ballots that had the incorrect precinct ballot had to be duplicated. Each absentee and provisional ballot was sorted by district-precinct. Each voter was verified before the ballots were opened, checked and scanned to be counted. Most people have no idea the process it takes to count the absentee and provisional ballots. It is a monumental task. It requires teams (a Democrat and a Republican) to open, revi ...

** I'll be posting a Frederick County factoid related to Andrew Jackson every day in honor of "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" opening this Thursday! ** By 1831, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad had completed a line from Baltimore to Frederick. Two years later, Andrew Jackson gave railroad travel its presidential christening. On June 6, 1833, in Ellicott's Mills, Maryland, President Andrew Jackson boarded a Baltimore & Ohio Railroad train for a pleasure trip to Baltimore. Jackson, who had never been on a train before, was the first president to take a ride on an "Iron Horse," as locomotives were known then.

All I can say that their are some key things that I have notice. So for the last time, especially who live in Frederick county.

It’s worth mentioning that President Obama has also made 11 trips — all or part of 27 days — to Camp David, the presidential retreat in Frederick County, Md. Knoller, however, says he doesn’t count trips to Camp David as part of any presidents’ "vacation" time. But for the sake of comparison, President George W. Bush, made more trips to that country residence than Obama. According to Knoller, Bush made 25 trips — a total of 78 days — to Camp David in 2001.
