At Benedict one can visit the town where over 4,000 British troops landed and camped before marching to Washington.  Nearby is Maxwell Hall, a restored home said to have been used by the British during their occupation of Benedict.  According to local legend, two British soldiers are buried at Oldfields Chapel.  The gravestone of Henry Canter reminds us of another legend where Henry was able to retrieve his horse from the British by sneaking up near the British encampment at night and whistling for it.
