« back to classes page
Thomas Johnson, Jr. (1732-1819) has one of the most impressive resumes in the annals of Frederick County history. In addition to being elected our state's first governor, he was a successful lawyer and businessman, member of the immortal Continental Congress, led troops in the Revolutionary War, served as one of the first Supreme Court Justices, and helped layout our nation's capital. Join us for a one day trek through Frederick County as we visit sites connected to his life, family, and times. Sites include Rose Hill Manor, Catoctin Furnace and Mount Olivet Cemetery among others. The timeliness of the tour comes from the fact that October 26th, 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Johnson's death.
