Fort Frederick in the Civil War

Built by the colony of Maryland in 1756, Fort Frederick’s walls were built of stone. It helped defend the frontier of Maryland during the French and Indian War, and later held prisoners of war during the Revolutionary War. By 1860, the now private property was sold to Nathan Williams, a formerly enslaved man, for $7,000. In December 1861, the 1st Maryland Infantry under the command of Colonel John Kenly, was assigned to protect the nearby C&O Canal and guard the fords and ferries of the Potomac River between Four Locks, to the east, and Cherry Run, to the west. Company H of the regiment was ordered to occupy Fort Frederick. Officers occupied several rooms in the Williams’ home. William’s wife, Ammy cooked meals for them. Nathan sold produce to Union soldiers on the Maryland side of the river, and Confederates on the Virginia (now West Virginia) side. He justified his fraternization with the Rebels by supplying information to the Federal troops. In 1884, Nathan Williams died, and the farm passed to his family. The Williams family owned it for 51 years until 1911. The state acquired the property in 1922, making Fort Frederick Maryland's first state park.
