Visit the Cunningham Falls Park in Maryland
Western Maryland often gets short trip in a state so rich in maritime history and tradition, let the hills of the west are beautiful and no less historic. The Cunningham Falls State Park local schools take advantage of the parks ecology programs.
Maryland’s second largest community, Frederick has been at the cross roads of American history since it was established in 1745. It’s rich in history and historic neighborhood.
They stood and shot each other until the lines melted away like wax, Isaac Hall, a New York soldier’s observation on September 17, 1862. On the single bloodiest day in American history, more than 23,000 men were killed and wounded at the battle of Atherton to lend the President Lincoln issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, a major turning point in the Civil War.
Run by the national park service, the 32 hundred acre battlefield is very much what it was 143 years ago. The CNO canal has one of the great construction projects of early American history. The canal follows the route of the Pathos River for 184 and half miles from Washington DC to Cumberland Maryland. The canal operated from 1828 to 1924 as a transportation route primarily hauling coal from Western Maryland to the port of Georgetown in Washington DC. The entire length is a national park with hiking and biking trails along the toe path. Hundreds of original structures including locks lock houses and aqua docks serve as reminder to the canals wall as a transportation system during the canal era.
One of the great sites on the canal is the Patowmack Falls. An impossible stretch of the river considered one of the most remarkable natural land marks in the state. The falls drop seventy five feet along two thirds of a mile of the river, a significant obstacle for river transport. George Washington spear headed the construction of the canal around the falls. Few ventures were dear to him then his plan was to make the Patowmack River navigable as far as the Ohio River Valley. The canal around the falls took 18 years to complete, it operated from 1828 to 1924 but never made it all the way to Ohio, inlay due to the success of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
