1. Carmichael House Marker
Inscription. Built in 1804 by William Carmichael (1775-1853), attorney and state senator who freed more than 120 of his family's slaves, 1811-1839. One of the largest manumissions in the state's history. Birthplace of Richard Bennett Carmichael (1807-1884), member of Congress, judge, and president of Maryland's Constitutional Convention (1867). On May 27, 1862, after resisting the Lincoln Administration's suspension of Habeas Corpus in Maryland, Judge Carmichael was arrested and imprisoned for treasonable acts.
