PA hard cover New English. In the years between 1668 and 1751, the government of Maryland envisioned an urban development program unrivaled in scope by any other colony except ... Virginia. Unwilling to allow development to occur naturally, both the Lord Proprietor and the legislature tried to create towns, ignoring the social, economic, and topographic realities that would doom most of them to short lives. The background of Maryland's attempt at urbanization is complex and perplexing. It is a history laced with proclamations and laws, acts and supplementary acts, all of which flowed against the grain of rural plantation society, as time and experience eventually proved. Of the 130 sites designated in the tidewater section of the state, less than a score exist today as cities or towns of any note. The others, the majority, shared a common end-they disappeared into oblivion, destroyed by the sequence of tumultuous events that shaped Maryland's past. This is the story of ten lost towns, chosen to represent a c Read more Show Less

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Donald Shomette's Lost Towns Of Tidewater Maryland is an engaging and informative history of ten representative communities of the 130 towns or ports of the tidewater area of Maryland founded in colonial days. Of those original 130 sites, less than a score continue to exist today as cities or towns of any note. The others gradually disappeared into oblivion, destroyed by the tumultuous events that shaped Maryland's history. The ten communities forming the basis of this history were individualistic in the circumstances of their creation, flickered into existence against the odds, matured, and then finally expired. More than a story of abandoned towns, buildings and wharves, Lost Towns Of Tidewater Maryland is an fascinating story of the freemen and slaves who created these communities, lived and worked in them, defended them, and died with them. Lost Towns Of Tidewater Maryland is a unique, superbly written and presented contribution to New England history in general and Maryland's tidewater development in particular.
