Did you know that the Continental Congress met in downtown Baltimore? Or that Abraham Lincoln just barely escaped an assisination attempt there? Or that German agents plotted sabotage on Charles Street during World War I? Please join us and our tour guide, Mr. Jefferson Gray, as we explore downtown Baltimore from its earliest days through the Civil War, the labor unrest of the Gilded Age, the Great Fire of 1904 and Civil Rights Movement. We’ll take in some great architecture, spot the filming sites of various movies, and of course learn a good bit about Baltimore’s history.
