True Tales of the Eastern Shore tells the story of the Shore through a series of historical figures and major events beginning with the Algonquin Indians. The actors explore the burning of the Peggy Stewart by colonists protesting British taxes; the life of Jeremiah Banning, a sea captain from Talbot County who was one of only two to survive imprisonment by French privateers in Martinique; the daring triumphs of Harriet Tubman on the Underground Railroad route from Dorchester County through Delaware; the bold resolve of Frederick Douglass who stood up to his slave master and escaped to freedom and a long career as the voice of abolition; and the self-isolation of the Shore's Thoreau-like literary icon, Gilbert Byron.
