Publication Date: 1961-04-14
"The Potomac", one of the most celebrated volumes in the Rivers of America series, returns to print in a new paperback edition. Frederick Gutheim follows the Potomac from its source in West Virginia to the Chesapeake Bay. Along the way, he brings to life the planters and presidents, frontiersmen and industrialists who have shaped the region's history. From Captain John Smith's 1609 expedition upriver to John Adam's doubting view of the still undeveloped federal city, from the insurrection at Harper's Ferry to the rapid transformation of twentieth-century Washington into a living-- and at times unruly-- metropolis, "The Potomac" traces the life of a great river and of the people who have lived along its banks.

Call Number: 398.209 FAI
Publication Date: 2013-07-16
In the shadows of the quiet mountain towns of Western Maryland, strange creatures are said to lurk in the woods while phantoms wander the foothills. The Hagerstown clock tower is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a young artist killed during the Civil War, while the low summit of South Mountain was once host to a mysterious spell-caster, the Wizard Zittle. Farther west, tales of legendary hunter Meshach Browning echo among the Allegany Mountains while visitors to Deep Creek Lake may feel the chilling presence of monks who never left their former monastery. From the 1909 hoax of the monstrous Snallygaster that terrorized the Middletown Valley to the doglike Dwayyo that was spotted near Frederick in 1965, local historian Susan Fair rounds up the bizarre beasts, odd characters and unsolved mysteries that color the legends and lore of Western Maryland.

Hagerstown, Maryland by Mary Rubin
Call Number: 975.29 RUB
Publication Date: 2001-07-10
Lying just north of the Potomac River in the heart of the fertile Cumberland Valley, Hagerstown, Maryland has been at the crossroads of history and commerce since its founding in 1762. Nestled between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, the city sits on a north-south path that migration, war, and commerce have traveled for centuries, while the nearby Potomac River carves out a natural path that served as a gateway to the American West. This fortunate geography influenced the growth and development of Hagerstown, the seat of Washington County, and also earned it the nickname Hub City. The unique story of Hagerstown, captured in this volume of vintage photographs, includes not only the tales of the Civil War, the coming of the railroad, and the C&O Canal, but of the men and women who built a community and made it home. Through their perseverance and spirit, the city took shape -- businesses were established, schools, hospitals, and churches erected, and neighborhoods formed. From Alsatia Mummer's parades and the Great Hagerstown Fair to the bygone days when trolleys rolled through town, the heritage of this singular city is recalled and honored in this engaging tribute.
