When Confederate plans went awry on June 26, 1862, Confederate Maj. Gen. A.P. Hill decided to wage a costly offensive against Union Brig. Gen. Fitz John Porter at Beaver Dam Creek. Unsupported, Hill's forces were repulsed and defeated. Hill expected Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson's arrival imminently as he forced a crossing of the Chickahominy River and led his six brigades known as the Light Division through the town of Mechanicsville to encounter Porter's corps entrenched behind Beaver Dam Creek.

BEAVER CREEK -- In a meadow at the base of South Mountain is the fish hatchery that supplies fish to all 123 of Maryland's trout streams, ponds and lakes.Nearby residents and environmentalists say the hatchery and the spring that feeds it are threatened by plans to expand a limestone quarry pit a few hundred yards away.Fed by a spring that provides 3,000 gallons of water a day at a constant 54 degrees, the Albert M. Powell Hatchery provides 400,000 or more rainbow trout a year for anglers from Muddy Creek, west of the Youghiogheny River, to Shad Landing Pond outside Pocomoke City.

Deirdre Hamilton is no fan of snow or cold. She doesn't like heights either. Yet every winter she vacations at a ski resort."My kids ski, and my husband skis," explains Hamilton, who lives in Northern California. "I gave it a try -- I even took lessons -- but I just don't like skiing. It's too cold."That's not to say Hamilton twiddles her thumbs in a crowded ski lodge getting bored and grumpy. She doesn't. She stays busy gambling near Lake Tahoe or getting a massage at Snowbird in Utah. "I want to have fun, too."
