Excellent article by Jon Kelvey on Sam Riley’s history presentation on Carroll County Md. history


Excellent article by Jon Kelvey on Sam Riley’s history presentation at the Historical Society of Carroll County celebration of Carroll County’s 180th birthday

Political rancor existed before Carroll County's birthday 180 years ago


The celebration of Carroll County's 180th birthday on Saturday was a couple of days belated: Carroll County was legally formed from portions of Baltimore and Frederick counties on Jan. 19, 1837.

Not that that was a problem for keynote speaker Sam Riley, president of Union Mills Homestead Foundation. Coming a day after the presidential inauguration, Riley saw an opportunity to tie the politics of today to the politics of the past, which he noted were often just as fraught and ill-tempered as today.

"Throughout our history, we've had these very tough elections," he said. "At the end of it all, despite all the nasty things we say about each other, somebody is forced to govern and figure out where to build roads and bridges."

About 50 to 60 people came out to Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster to hear Riley's presentation on one of Carroll County's pioneering families, the Shrivers, and the political debates of their times.
