National Park Service, Maryland.
Choosing revolution, as Thomas Stone and many others eventually did, was not an easy or inevitable decision for most American colonists. The outcome of a war with England was far from certain and regardless of who won, the lives of the colonists would never be the same. With safety, security, family and fortune at stake, courage and personal sacrifice were tested no matter what side was chosen.
Thomas Stone NHS is located on Rose Hill Road, between U.S. Highways 225 and 6, four miles west of LaPlata, MD.
