Unique Perspectives on Historic Baltimore
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 

We gained fresh appreciation of Baltimore’s historical sites, marking the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. History came alive with insightful tours led by Dr. Ralph Eshelman, renowned historian and author on Maryland, U.S. maritime history and the War of 1812.

We explored Ft. McHenry and the NEW Visitor’s Center, and helped raise the flag together at the Fort.

We discovered the Star Spangled Banner Flag House and perused The Maryland Historical Society marveling at “The Finer Side”, a special tour of works by renowned Maryland artists in painting, furniture, silver, architecture and music.
