From Orphans' Court judge to governor, U.S. senator to city commissioner, no public service job was too big or too small for John Eager Howard, the Revolutionary War colonel for whom Howard County was named. Born to a wealthy Baltimore County family in 1752, he made his name in the American Revolution, gaining recognition for military prowess and courage. "He belonged to a generation of Marylanders who served the Revolution well," said Maryland State Archivist Edward C. Papenfuse. In the 1781 Battle of Cowpens, Howard, then a lieutenant colonel, was "credited with turning the apparent British triumph into an American victory" in South Carolina, according to "John Eager Howard: Patriot and Public Servant," a Maryland Historical Magazine article by Cary Howard.

The Battle of Cedar Creek was fought on a foggy day. So it is appropriate that some of the details of that day are just as foggy. Brig. Gen. John Howard Kitching was among the Union officers who fought in the battle, and he died from wounds inflicted during the battle. Although he was a general officer, little is known about his life and even less is noted in most histories of the battle. John Howard Kitching was named after his father, John Benjamin Kitching, a merchant who was born in Horsforth, England, on April 20, 1818.
