Visiting Southern Maryland for War of 1812 Conference

Recently, Executive Director Carol Benson and Heritage Programs Coordinator Aleithea Williams visited Southern Maryland for the “Star-Spangled 200 Conference”, concerning the upcoming commemoration of the War of 1812. After spending the morning at the Calvert Marine Museum, and admiring the stingrays and otters, we spent a good part of the afternoon walking the beautiful grounds of Jefferson-Patterson Park and Museum in Saint Leonard, MD, or Jef-Pat (as the locals like to call it!). Near the end of the day, we visited Serenity Farms, which lives up to its name (check out the view in the photo below).

Attending this conference helped us understand that Maryland had a significant role in the events and outcomes of the War of 1812. For more information about Maryland’s role, and the upcoming commemorative events all over the state, visit www.warof1812.org. Also, be sure to check out, and check often, Four Rivers Heritage Area calendar for 1812 events in the near and distant future.
