Join Baltimore historian and educator Wayne R. Schaumburg as we look at Baltimore’s role in the American Revolution. Discover our town’s unique response to the Stamp Act crisis. Learn about a group of soldiers called the Maryland 400, many of whom were from Baltimore, that saved Washington’s army at the Battle of Long Island. Did you know that Baltimore was the capital of the United States for three months? Learn about Mary Katherine Goddard’s contribution to American independence, and the construction of the first American frigate built in Fell’s Point. Finally we answer the burning question: did George Washington sleep here? This and more on February 2nd!
