Frederick s Connections to the old "Wild West"(ILR773)

ID : 12030    Section number : 3596
« back to classes page
At the time of its creation in 1745, Frederick Town was on the western frontier of Maryland and American European settlement. Over the next century and a half, westward expansion would reach across the continent to the Pacific Ocean. Frederick has several ties to this important story through past residents, subtle roles in notable events and visits to town by legendary “Wild West” icons. I guess you could call it “Frederick’s Manifest Destiny.” As he has done with past ILR offerings, Chris will combine lecture, PowerPoint presentation, video and a touch of humor in this story of how Frederick, Maryland had a small hand in “winning the West".
