Return to Boscobel and the Batttle of Monocacy

My friend Virginia makes another visit to the grounds of Boscobel in Frederick County, Maryland. To quote:
Boscobel is situated high on a hill above the Monocacy River and Bush Creek.  The builders of the stunning house made their money as millers, and so, at the base of the driveway is the Mill House.  My great-grandparents were not millers, but farmers.  And early in their marriage, my grandparents resided in the stone Mill House at the base of the long driveway up to Boscobel.   In addition to my personal history, all of this ground was part of the Battle of the Monocacy, sometimes called The Battle that Saved Washington.(Read more.)
