In 1922, more than a quarter of the U.S. Marine Corps came through Frederick County on their way to Gettysburg. Along the way, the Marines were greeted by crowds and they camped at both the Frederick Fairgrounds and Hooker Lewis' farm in Thurmont going to and returning from Gettysburg. In Gettysburg, they conducted battle re-enactments both historically and with modern military equipment.
