Monocacy National Battlefield

On the morning of July 9, six-year-old Glenn Worthington was ushered into the farmhouse cellar with his family and their slaves. The windows had been boarded with thick oak boards and tubs of drinking water were placed in the cellar. Young Glenn peered between the gaps of the boarded windows, witnessing horrific events as the battle unfolded.
When the fighting stopped, Glenn helped his family tend to the wounded soldiers who lay in the yard. That afternoon, Glenn was injured while trying to retrieve a bayonet from a pile of burning rifles. A coal from the fire ignited a cartridge, which exploded in his face. Glenn was burned, but fully recovered in a few weeks.
