About Frederick

Frederick was settled by German immigrants in the mid-1700s. By the mid 1800s, it was a major mining area, producing, iron, marble, limestone, gold, and copper, along with other minerals. Because of its location, both Union and Confederate troops were led directly through the city during the Civil War. Many slaves eventually fled the area to fight with the Union, and the city was the site of a speech delivered by President Abraham Lincoln after the Battle of Antietam.

Located in Frederick County in northern Maryland, the city of Frederick is situated along several different interstates. It sits west of Baltimore and north of D.C.
