The Life, Times, and Death of Thomas Johnson, Jr. – New!
1 session • 7.5 hours

With one of the most impressive resumes in Frederick County History, Thomas Johnson, Jr. (1732-1819) was elected our state’s first governor in addition to being a successful lawyer and businessman, and a member of the immortal Continental Congress. He also led troops in the Revolutionary War, served as one of the first Supreme Court Justices, and helped plan layout our nation’s capital. Join us to visit Frederick County sites connected to his life, family, and times during this one-day outing. Our itinerary includes Rose Hill Manor, Catoctin Furnace and Mount Olivet Cemetery among others. We scheduled this tour to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Johnson’s death on October 26, 1819.
