Baltimore, President-Making City: A Talk by Author Stan Haynes

May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$10 – $15 | Register

Baltimore was once the primary American city for hosting presidential nominating conventions. Six presidents, including Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, and Woodrow Wilson, were nominated here. With the 2024 conventions on the horizon, join Baltimore Heritage and the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion for an informative discussion, presented by Stan Haynes, of the intrigue, hoopla, and drama of the Baltimore conventions.

The author of three books about the history of presidential nominating conventions, Mr. Haynes has been called by The New Yorker “the most exhaustive chronicler of the conventions.” He has spoken about his books at presidential sites and has been interviewed about them by several major media outlets
