Today we kicked off our research for the Star Spangled Banner Trail with Ranger Vince from Ft. McHenry. Students got a tour of what happened right here in Patterson Park during the Battle of Baltimore in September of 1814. Some students read passages out loud depicting the scene on top of Hampstead Hill and they all identified important locations on the map. The historical marker will be unveiled this Spring. Stay tuned for more information!
This page is dedicated to the work and research my students do each day.
