On December 13, 1749, John Murphy was sentenced to be hanged for "felony and
burglary," becoming the first person executed in Frederick County. He was
hanged the day he was sentenced, which was the day after his arrest.

On December 13, 1939, Challedon was named "Horse of The Year" after winning
$184,353 for Glade Valley Farms near Walkersville during the year.
