On December 29, 1824, General Lafayette was received at the Monocacy (Jug)
Bridge by many Frederick dignitaries, including Lawrence Everhart, who had
carried a wounded Lafayette from the Brandywine Battlefield during the
Revolutionary War, and taken to town with great pomp and circumstance.
On December 29, 1830, six members of the John Newby household in Harbaugh
Valley west of Thurmont were stabbed to death and their home burned to the
ground. John Markley was executed for the crime on June 24, 1831, on the
Barracks Grounds on South Market Street.
