Between the waters of the Atlantic and the Chesapeake is Delmarva, a storied land that was once the hunting ground of Blackbeard, where ancient sea monsters lurk and wild ponies gallop along the beaches. Local author David Healey explores the lore of Delmarva, from the legends of St. Michaels—the town that escaped British cannons with a clever trick—to stories of Assateague’s cannibalistic colonists and the all but forgotten history of Anna Carroll, President Lincoln’s “Dear Lady,” who is rumored to have brilliantly advised him on strategy during the Civil War. Join Healey as he reveals the secret history and remarkable legends of Delmarva.
