Haunted by the Heroes of 1776

Haunted by the Heroes of 1776

Caroline County sent six regimental, militia, and staff colonels to war against British imperial troops during 1776-1783:

Col. Peter Adams
Col. Matthew Driver
Col. Philip Feddiman
Col. Benson Stainton
Col. William Richardson
Col. William Whiteley

We know where they fought. But we know nearly nothing about the civilian life and final resting place of most of them –  Adams, Feddiman, Driver, and Stainton.

The tombs of Richardson and Whiteley are in forgotten places. The rest are lost.

Caroline’s other Colonel is not as Cool

Caroline County has her Revolutionary War hero – Colonel Richardson – with schools named after him and plaques to honor him.

His Caroline County neighbor, Colonel Peter Adams, commanded the Maryland 2nd Regiment in the war’s final battle at Yorktown in 1781. Remember?
