For eleven days in the summer of 1863, the Civil War raged within the borders of Washington County, Maryland. Local towns Hagerstown and Williamsport saw the brunt of the fighting as General Meade's Army of the Potomac drove Robert E. Lee's Confederate troops south across the Potomac River. Follow in the footsteps of these Civil War combatants 156 years later on our new walking tour, led by local author and historian Stephen Bockmiller. This 3-hour tour follows the direct path of the battle as it wound its way through the streets of Hagerstown. You'll hop onto a bus for the final leg of the tour, which follows the troops' route down to Williamsport. The tour will depart from the Hagerstown Public Square and end up by Hagerstown City Hall. Parking will be available in the Elizabeth Center Parking Lot and Central Lot, located at 14 N. Potomac St., or across the street at the University District Parking Lot at 25 N. Potomac St. Please note that this tour will require walking and standing for several hours at a time.

From above, Earth appears as a water planet with more than 71 percent of its surface covered with this vital resource for life. Water impacts climate, agriculture, transportation, industry and more. It inspires art and music. The Washington County Historical Society, in cooperation with Maryland Humanities, will examine water as an environmental necessity and an important cultural element as it hosts “Water/Ways,” a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street (MoMS) program. “Water/Ways” will be on view August 31st through October 12th. The Miller House Museum and the surrounding community has been expressly chosen by Maryland Humanities to host “Water/Ways” as part of the Museum on Main Street program—a national/state/local partnership to bring exhibitions and programs to rural cultural organizations. The exhibition will tour six communities in Maryland from May 2019 through March 2020. “Water/Ways” explores the endless motion of the water cycle, water’s effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality. It looks at how political and economic planning have long been affected by access to water and control of water resources. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.
