Port Tobacco News from Around the Web

Public Meeting Scheduled for Religious Freedom Byway Corridor
From Southern Maryland Online - MD,USA

"Local County governments will be holding a public meeting on Wednesday, February 27, to discuss the Religious Freedom Tour Byway that will traverse southern Maryland.

The Religious Freedom Byway incorporates many of the nation’s oldest churches, the site of the first Roman Catholic Mass held in English-speaking America, and Maryland’s colonial capital, Historic St. Mary’s City.

The byway generally follows along the Maryland shore of the Potomac River from Port Tobacco to Point Lookout along State Routes 225, 301, 234 and 5. "

Our logo contest was announced on the Charles County Cafe.

Crossed Sabers posted two additional Charles Bates letters written from Port Tobacco in 1863. Both contain interesting information about the Union Calvary's operations in the town.
