As Maryland prepares to kick off the celebration of the War of 1812 next year, organizations throughout the area are offering programs highlighting the local stories. The latest one to come to our attention is sponsored by the Archeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake. The group will host a talk “Archeology of 1812 British Raiding on the North Chesapeake Bay: Frenchtown, Havre de Grace & Fredericktown” on Oct. 13. Troy Novak, Maryland’s assistant underwater archeologist, is the speaker for the program, which takes places at the Havre de Grace City Hall beginning with light refreshments at 6:30 p.m.
Be sure to keep an eye on the organizations calendar for they have a number of interesting programs on their schedule. George Reynolds will speak about the origins of organized archeology in northeastern Maryland on Sept. 8th at Harford Glen.
