  6. Lower Marlboro Freedom Day

    October 7, 2017, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Lower Marlboro Hall, Wharf, and Church

    Lower Marlboro was affected deeply by the War of 1812. In July of 1814, British forces sailed up the Patuxent River, landed at Lower Marlboro, burned warehouses full of tobacco, and left with at least thirteen enslaved persons from the Ballard plantation near the wharf. Some of the houses that remain in the community were witnesses to these events. The celebration in Lower Marlboro will focus attention on the community and its history. It is the freedom of the thirteen people that the event is designed to celebrate, while providing opportunities to learn about the context of those events and the history of the town. Enjoy a great day on the river. Learn through exhibits and interpreters. Take a kayak tour on the Patuxent, enjoy food from Cuddy's Rockin' Ribs and follow a walking tour of this historic community.
