Overview

The Journal of the Four Horsemen summarizes the adventures of four young businessmen and their efforts to help save their community from financial disaster. From the closing of the townâs major employer and the loss of over two thousand jobs, it traces the endeavors of a group of citizens in Cambridge, Maryland to bring an unemployment rate of almost 25% down to less than 5 %. Written from first-hand experience, it portrays the planning, the plodding, and the politics involved in industrial development.

It describes the inspiring sense of achievement, the frustration of defeat, and laughs at the frailties of man ... especially their own. Without intending it to be, it is a road map for a "do-it-yourself" community economic program. Ride and fly with these men as they negotiate with such notables as the legendary James Rouse,
The Chinese Food King Jeno Paulucci, and "Izzy"
Meyers the founder of London Fog, as they entertain foreign dignitaries for The Department of State and match political wit with foes of the White House.


The quaint town of Cambridge, Maryland is located on the south bank of the great Choptank River, a major tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. Before it became a town, the area had been inhabited by the Algonquian-speaking Choptank Indians. In the year 1669, The Maryland Assembly set aside that land as a Choptank Tribe Reservation. Fifteen years later, in 1684, The Maryland Assembly designated that same sector as a âport of entry" ... and the town of Cambridge was born. Cambridge was incorporated officially in 1793 and is one the oldest colonial cities in Maryland to have survived from that early date.
Because the Eastern Shore was settled by English colonists, most community names were derived from familiar British cities and families. Our county, Dorchester, was named for the Earl of Dorset, a friend of the Calvert family.
Although tucked away in a comer of the Delmarva Peninsula, Cambridge is steeped in history with quaint and attractive waterfronts and interesting architecture. It is the home of four former Governors of Maryland, as well as Stephen Allen Benson, the second President of Liberia. Anna Emma Carroll the "silent member" of Abraham Lincoln's cabinet resided here along with other notables such as Annie Oakley, Harriet Tubman, John Barth and Bea Arthur.
