Walk the same steps that our forefathers walked. Packet boats from Philadelphia met stage coaches and railroad for Frenchtown, Maryland, chief line of communication from north to Baltimore and South. Andrew Jackson, David Crockett, Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, Lord Ashburton, Sam Houston, Louis Napoleon, Stonewall Jackson, Indians (led by Osceola and Black Hawk) en route to visit “Great Father” in Washington all passed this way.
