Delmarva History Series: The Eastern Shore and Its Role in the War of 1812 with Ross Kimmel
Lecture, Nabb Center Gallery
Thursday, March 29, 7pm
To many Americans, the War of 1812 was the second War of Independence. Much of the War took place locally, in the Chesapeake Bay area, with St. Michaels, MD, Lewes, DE, and Tangier Island, VA, seeing action. Eastern Shore figures such as Levin Winder, wartime governor of Maryland and Joshua Thomas, the “parson of the islands” played important roles in this not-well remembered conflict between Britain and her former upstart colony in America.
