War has been an unfortunate constant throughout human history, and Maryland’s history is no different. We will be looking at Maryland’s role in many of America’s wars and the contributions and sacrifices made. Come learn more about the significant contributions of Maryland Patriots in the Revolutionary War, how the first blood of the Civil War was spilled on Baltimore streets, and the curious case of a German submarine in Baltimore’s harbor during World War I.
