It was two months after the Confederacy's decisive victory in May 1863 at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Va., and Gen. Robert E. Lee was preparing his army for a full-fledged invasion of the North. The time for another critical battle was drawing nearer as both cavalries rode through the county trying to probe the other side. To disguise his preparations, Lee sent Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart and all but two cavalry brigades to confuse Union intelligence. Meanwhile, Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker, commander of the Union Army of the Potomac, sent the forces under Maj. Gen. Alfred Pleasonton to search for information on Lee's position.

If the circumstances were different, Matt Wieters might have been surrounded by reporters during Thursday's media availability at Camden Yards. As his Orioles teammates faced cameras and questions, the injured catcher faced the reality of sitting out the team's first American League Championship Series in 17 years. Wieters, who hasn't played since early May and underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in June, said the 2014 playoffs are the most significant games that he has missed since he had to sit out a summer All-Star game as a 13-year-old in Goose Creek, S.C. “It's difficult in the aspect that you want to be out there with your guys, you want to be out there on the battlefield playing, but at the same time, the way the guys have played have really made it easier for me,” Wieters said.

Maryland recorded its first boating accident of the year Tuesday morning when a Dorchester waterman fell from his boat and drowned while power dredging for oysters, Natural Resources Police reported. Samuel Edwin Todd, 59, of Crocheron was working at the mouth of Goose Creek and Fishing Bay at about 9:30 a.m. when the dredge he had just emptied failed to drop back into the water, swung back toward the deck and struck him. The force of the blow knocked him overboard, the NRP said. Todd's mate was not familiar with how the boat operated, and ran to the VHF radio to call for help.

Sid Busch will run the Baltimore Marathon with a fallen Marine on his back. It's a weight he is proud to carry. On Saturday, Busch, 66, will pin a photo of Jimmy Malachowski to his shirt, look skyward and murmur something to the leatherneck from Westminster, who was killed in Afghanistan last year. Then, as he has done 40 times before, Busch will race the 26.2 miles through city streets in memory of a serviceman he never met. Some six hours later, when he's done, Busch will hand his finishing medal to Malachowski's parents.
