“Humanizing the War of 1812: Telling the Untold Stories along the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail” is the theme of a National Park Service workshop taking place at Harford Community College on April 8th
Dr. Allen Taylor, a national author and university professor, will open the day long workshop with remarks about his recent research into the role of African-Americans during the War of 1812. The morning session includes a living history performance, as participants engage in a discussion about using costumed interpretations to express the perspective of African-American women.
In the afternoon, discussions led by field experts and professionals will break into workshops that include using research to uncover the untold stories of the War, making your interpretive program engaging and developing relevant programs for youth.
The afternoon concludes with a session that concentrates on using the trail network to promote the untold stories at your site. Click here for more details. Joining the National Park Service in sponsoring this program are the Maryland Historical Trust and Harford Community College.
