Significant Past Events - Fort Frederick Market Days 2002

     Every year, historic Fort Frederick, in Maryland, hosts their annual Market Days, one of the largest sutlering events on the East Coast.  Here you can walk row after row of 18th Century stores, a literal mall of goodies for the reenactor.  It's very easy to spend thousands of dollars here, and still want more.  If you're in the market for anything period, this is the place to get it.

     This year's event was held between torrential rain storms.  The clouds cleared from the sky Thursday afternoon, leaving Friday and Saturday wonderfully beautiful.  The rain rolled in again Saturday evening, and the deluge did not stop, turning the entire area into a flooded mud hill by Sunday, when everyone tried to leave at once.  Add tornado warnings to the mix and it made for an exciting last day.
