Monocacy Battlefield

Monocacy National Battlefield encompasses several centuries of history reflecting events of both national and local significance. Here one can experience 1,647 acres of rolling farm fields and historic buildings along the scenic Monocacy River. Located about one hour from Baltimore and Washington, DC, little has changed since the 1864 battle. Although the landscape appears rural, the park is located less than two miles south of the city of Frederick, Maryland. The Worthington, Best and Thomas family farms, present at the time of the battle, have been preserved.
