CHRISTIANA, Pa. -- The first green shoots of spring have broken through the brown earth of a hillside field, where an escaped slave from Anne Arundel County and a slaveholder from Baltimore County met in mortal conflict a decade before the Civil War. Edward Gorsuch, a son of one of Maryland's oldest families, came north in search of four runaway slaves with a posse that included his son, a nephew and a U.S. marshal. William Parker, who was born and grew up on the Rowdown Plantation near Davidsonville, led a self-defense team gathered to resist the owners and kidnappers of fugitive slaves.

CHRISTIANA, Pa. - On a map, this small, nondescript town of 400 families, surrounded on all sides by Amish farm country, is hard to find. Yet banners on Christiana telephone poles wave proudly "Freedom Began Here!" And famous abolitionist and orator Frederick Douglass once wrote, "The battle for liberty began in Christiana." It was here 150 years ago today that one of the most violent confrontations over slavery in antebellum America took place: the Christiana Riot, where a Baltimore County slaveowner in pursuit of his runaway slaves was killed, his body pelted with bullets and hacked with corn knives.

The next instant she was lying on the floor of her mobile home in the Ponderosa Park campground, watching most of her belongings swirling in the air around her."It happened so fast, but it seemed like an eternity," she said. "Everything was flying around, glass, pictures off the walls, papers, coffee cups, everything. It felt like a horror movie."But the worst part of yesterday morning was just starting for Quadros, who has worked as a manager of the popular 180-space campground for the past two years.

Cleanup crews worked yesterday to capture oil-soaked ducks and to remove oil from boats and beaches in the Elk River and the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal, fouled early Saturday when hundreds of gallons spilled from a barge.Officials said the cleanup may take a week and had no cost estimates. But the damage to wildlife and the Chesapeake Bay should be modest, officials said."In terms of impact, I think they were lucky, and they responded very quickly," said Joyce Ponsell, who surveyed the spill for Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research, a nonprofit organization based in Newark, Del.She and colleagues spent three hours yesterday unsuccessfully trying to catch seven oil-soaked mallard ducks, which she said would die if not cleaned.
