Explore the Impact of the War of 1812

Maryland Historical Society

 

Think you know about the War of 1812? Just when was our “Second War for Independence” fought? (Hint: not in 1812!). Why was Canada involved in our war against Great Britain? And who won anyway? The answers could change the way you think about America’s “forgotten war.” The “In Full Glory Reflected: Maryland in the War of 1812” experience details the heroes and symbols that emerged during the War of 1812. Travel back in time 200 years and explore the area where the war was fought; hear gripping stories of devastating raids, heroic defense, gallant privateers, fugitive slaves and threatened lands; and see first-hand one of America’s greatest national treasures – the original manuscript of Francis Scott Key’s “The Star-Spangled Banner”– which later became our national anthem. Relive this Maryland milestone – an American milestone – and more at the Maryland Historical Society.
