The need for an expanded ordnance proving ground gave Congress the authorization to take over and acquire for the United States war effort large tracts of land along the shoreline of Harford County. President Woodrow Wilson's first proclamation claiming the land was dated Oct. 16, 1917, but was amended on Dec. 14, 1917. Owners of land were given until Jan. 1, 1918, to vacate their properties. Some went willingly; others went grudgingly. John Cadwalader, owner of a mansion on Maxwell Point, was not happy, but delayed vacating his property while he tried to find other homes for his tenant farmers.
