Frederick Town: a History of the City of Frederick
3 sessions, 4.5 hours each
This series is based on the award winning documentary series Frederick Town. Selections of the documentary are embedded into the course along with additional content, “show and tell” and discussion. This documentary was produced to commemorate the 1745 founding of Frederick in the backlands of the Maryland colony. Featuring more than a dozen on-camera historians and commentators, Frederick’s story is presented through vintage artwork, photographs and artifacts, scenic mood footage and quotes and diary passages. The documentary covers the 1700s through the present day to include Native American and colonist history including early trade and the pursuit of riches.
Note: The summer session series will focus solely on the 1700s.
