Washington Crossing the South River

Jack McCorkle as George Washington


I grew up in Wild Rose Shores, a community at the end of Ferry Point Road. It’s called that because it was originally the North side of the ferry crossing from Londontowne on the South River. In 1983, I was preparing for my second year of college. For several years I had been active in a Revolutionary War reenactment group based in Annapolis. Wild Rose Shores wanted to have their own event for the bicentennial of the American Revolution. They provided George Washington on a horse and I brought in some of my artillery regiment. The event was covered by the local paper as well as by a special community newsletter.
