This is a reprint of Oswald Tilghman’s magnificent history of his native county, and it should be welcomed by anyone wishing to obtain a full account of its beginnings, political contests, progress in education and industry, and its notable citizens. Volume I, which is subtitled The Worthies of Talbot County, contains biographical sketches of notable citizens, among whom are represented the men of the Goldsborough, Tilghman, Benton, Martin, Lloyd, Thomas, Kerr, Hambleton, Chamberlaine, Hollyday, Stevens, and other families.
