Baltimore 1814


From January to December 2014, Baltimore Heritage shared stories from the day-to-day history of Baltimore’s people and places in 1814.

Over the course of the year, we built an online collection of short stories on the history of Baltimore, the War of 1812, and the world of 1814. Hundreds of readers enjoyed short stories every week highlighting events that took place on the same date in 1814. Most of our stories are set in Baltimore but occasional features on events in Maryland and around the world will help us see our city’s, history in a broader context. We’re also using categories and tags to organize these materials into themes — including invention & industry, arts & culture, slavery & abolition — that help you discover stories from earlier in the year on topics that most interest you.
