Edward Lloyd (Governor of Maryland)

Edward Lloyd V served as the 13th Governor of Maryland from 1809 to 1811, as a United States Senator from Maryland between 1819 and 1826. He served as a U. S. Congressman from the seventh district of Maryland from 1807 to 1809. Born in 1779 at "Wye House", Talbot County, Maryland, he was a member of a prominent Eastern Shore family, "the Lloyds of Wye," which had lived in Talbot County since the mid-17th century, his father Edward Lloyd IV was a member of the Continental Congress. He received early education from private tutors. Lloyd served in the Maryland House of Delegates from 1800 to 1805, he was elected to the Ninth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Joseph H. Nicholson and was reelected to the Tenth Congress, serving from December 3, 1806 to March 3, 1809. In 1808, Lloyd was elected as Governor of Maryland, a position he served in from 1809 to 1811. During this period Lloyd traded a Merino ram for "Sailor," a male Newfoundland that had a reputation for spectacularly enthusiastic water dog retrieving of ducks.

The dog was bred with other retrievers at Lloyd's estate on the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay. Sailor is now considered the "father" of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever line. Lloyd was commissioned a lieutenant colonel of the Ninth Regiment of Maryland Militia and served as a member of the Maryland State Senate from 1811 to 1815, he was elected as a Democratic Republican to the United States Senate in 1819, was reelected in 1825, served from March 4, 1819 until his resignation on January 14, 1826. In the Senate, Lloyd served as chairman of the Committee on the District of Columbia. In life, Lloyd served as member of the Maryland State Senate from 1826 to 1831, as President of the Senate in 1826, he died in Annapolis, is interred in the family burying ground at Wye House near Easton, Maryland. Lloyd was an important slaveholder and vocal defender of the institution of slavery throughout his political career; the African-American abolitionist Frederick Douglass, who had grown up as a slave on one of Lloyd's plantations, discussed Lloyd in his 1845 autobiography The Narrative of Frederick Douglass.

The book describes the acts of cruelty committed by Lloyd's overseers, dwells at length on Lloyd's own despotic treatment, including whippings of two slaves caring for his horses: To all these complaints no matter how unjust, the slave must answer never a word. Colonel Lloyd could not brook any contradiction from a slave; when he spoke, a slave must stand and tremble. I have seen Colonel Lloyd make old Barney, a man between fifty and sixty years of age, uncover his bald head, kneel down upon the cold, damp ground, receive upon his naked and toil-worn shoulders more than thirty lashes at the time.

Waterloo Village, New Jersey

Not to be confused with Waterloo, Monmouth County, New Jersey. Waterloo Village is a restored 19th-century canal town in Byram Township, Sussex County in northwestern New Jersey, United States; the community was the half-way point in the 102-mile trip along the Morris Canal, which ran from Jersey City to Phillipsburg, New Jersey. Waterloo possessed all the accommodations necessary to service the needs of a canal operation, including an inn, a general store, a church, a blacksmith shop, a watermill. For canal workers, Waterloo's geographic location would have been conducive to being an overnight stopover point on the two-day trip between Phillipsburg and Jersey City, it is an open-air museum in Allamuchy Mountain State Park. As part of the State Park, it is open to the public from sunrise to sunset; the village was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 13, 1977. Opened in 1831, the Morris Canal's traffic volume, anthracite coal from Pennsylvania, peaked during the late 1860s, shortly after the end of the American Civil War.

Up until that time, the local railroads — the Lackawanna Railroad's Sussex Branch and Morris and Essex Railroad — had only supplemented the canal's operation, rather than competing with it. Both railroads ran within a short distance of the village. After the War, the canal's traffic began to shift over to the much faster and more reliable railroad, it was expected that during most winters the canal would be frozen solid, thus impassable during the time when its chief commodity was in greatest demand. As a result, the canal underwent a steady decline, so did Waterloo Village. Although the canal was not abandoned until 1924 did more than one boat a year run through the canal after 1900. By the time of the Great Depression, Waterloo Village had been abandoned by its original owners; the village's location, within a short distance of the Lackawanna Railroad, made it easy for hobos to jump on and off boxcars. The hobos, as it turned out, found Waterloo and adopted it as a stopping off point on their cross-country journey towards New York.

This new purpose for the village wasn't all that different from its original purpose a century earlier. The hobos protected Waterloo Village by occupying it throughout the'40s; the original Waterloo railroad station was moved from the station site during the 1940s and became a private residence on U. S. Route 206 in New Jersey. Percival'Percy' Leach established the not-for-profit Waterloo Foundation for the Arts to finance the restoration of the village in 1967. Leach and his partner in the interior design business Lou Gualandi turned it into a living history tourist attraction with working blacksmiths, candle dippers and weavers demonstrated crafts from the colonial historic eras; the village would become part of New Jersey's Allamuchy Mountain State Park. Admissions fees being never enough to cover the administrative costs of the attract, the partners sought out corporate and state grants, but opened an open-air concert field on the property in 1977 to raise funds. Notable acts who have performed at Waterloo include Muddy Waters, Johnny Cash, the Beach Boys, the Allman Brothers, Arlo Guthrie, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Indigo Girls, Edie Brickell, Melissa Etheridge, Joe Cocker, The Moody Blues, Blues Traveler, Ray Charles, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Blue Öyster Cult and three Lollapalooza tours.

In addition to pop and rock concerts, Waterloo has hosted craft shows, ethnic festivals, Metropolitan Opera, classical music and the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival. Following Gualandi's death in 1988, Leach became involved in several controversies that brought greater scrutiny upon the Waterloo Foundation for the Arts; the most controversial was the so-called "land swap" that allowed BASF corporation to build a large corporate headquarters on land that had once been part of Allamuchy Mountain State Park. The Waterloo board of directors subsequently brought in a new management team and throughout the mid- to late-1990s tried to rebuild trust in the running of the village. In 1995, a concert-goer died at a Phish concert that had attracted 30,000 people though only 18,000 tickets were sold. Events like this had overwhelmed the area's limited access roads and caused considerable friction with the surrounding towns; the foundation began downsizing the concerts around this time. In the period from 2003 to 2006, the Waterloo Foundation for the Arts had received $900,000 from the State of New Jersey for general expenses, along with more than $300,000 since 2000 to cover repairs.

As the state showed increasing displeasure with the village's operation, the $250,000 the group had expected to receive, which would have been used towards the $2 million operating budget for the site, was cut from the 2007 state budget. Waterloo Village was shut down in December 2006, except for the owned Waterloo United Methodist Church, which has a small but dedicated congregation and continues to operate as it has for over 150 years. In the period beginning in 2006, the Village was only open intermittently. Percy Leach died in 2007 leaving the organization's future uncertain. Since the closing, several organizations continued to restore aspects of the village. Friends of Waterloo and the Canal Society focused on Canal Town while a
