Cecil College Offers New Continuing Education Course: Maryland and the War of 1812

https://delmarvahistory.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/war-of-1812-hdg.jpgAs the region commemorates the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, Cecil College is offering a course this spring that focuses on the conflict in Maryland.  During those frightening times, the region’s cities and small towns were attacked as enemy warships penetrated the area, sailing freely on the Bay.  The course, taught by historian Mike Dixon, considers this major theater, the Chesapeake Bay, during the nation’s second war with Britain.

Drawing on primary sources, including diaries, letters, newspapers, military records, official reports, and other documents penned during those troubling times on the Chesapeake, the three session continuing education course makes those frightening days come alive.  It was a time when the war was on our shores and it is presented through factual stories from the annals of communities all up and down the Bay.  To strengthen the learning, the course includes field trips.  The course starts on May 15, 2012.  Click here for additional information.
