Westminster, Maryland

On June 29, 1863, the cavalry skirmish known as Corbit’s Charge was fought in the streets of Westminster, when two companies of Delaware cavalry attacked a much larger Confederate force under General J.E.B. Stuart.

Westminster is the birthplace of Sargent Shriver (1915–2011), former candidate for Vice President of the United States and brother-in-law of John F. Kennedy.
