Searching for the War of 1812 in Patterson Park: Project Introduction & Community Meeting

January 29, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm



In 1814, Patterson Park was the site of Baltimore’s largest defense against a British land invasion during the Battle of Baltimore. This spring, Baltimore Heritage is leading an archaeological survey of the park to dig up more about this history and preserve the battlefield for future generations.

Join us on the evening of January 29 for an introduction to the project featuring a special presentation on the history of Hampstead Hill and Baltimore’s Eastern Defensive line by Baltimore historian Scott Sheads. We want to hear your questions about the history of the War of 1812 in Patterson Park before we go searching for the answers! For nearby residents around the park, this is a good opportunity to share any questions you may have about how the archaeology will affect the park and learn more our plans for getting the community out and involved.

Patterson Park, conocido como Hampstead Hill a principios de 1800, fue el lugar de mayor posición defensiva de Baltimore contra una invasión terrestre británico en la guerra de 1812. Con fondos de la Autoridad del Área de Maryland de Patrimonio (Baltimore Heritage en inglés) y el Programa de Protección American Battlefield (ABPP) del Servicio de Parques Nacionales (NPS), Baltimore Heritage está planeando una investigación arqueológica en el Parque Patterson en la primavera de 2014.

El 29 de enero, vamos a compartir los antecedentes del proyecto, una historia de la guerra de 1812 en el Parque Patterson y pidió sus pensamientos sobre lo que debemos de aprender al investigar la arqueología y la historia del parque. ¡Habrá más detalles pronto!

Special thanks to generous support from Maryland Heritage Area Authority, the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program, and PNC Bank and our project partners: the Friends of Patterson Park, the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks, and the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation.
