On December 3, 1766, Barbara Hauer (Fritchie) was born in Pennsylvania. She
died December 18, 1862, just three months after she allegedly waved the
American flag at Confederate soldiers passing in front of her West Patrick
Street home.

On December 3, 1831, the B&O Railroad began regular service between
Frederick and Baltimore with horse-drawn cars. Frederick was the western
terminal for the line until 1842.
