During the War of 1812, Royal Navy warships pushed into Chesapeake Bay and up the Potomac River to punish the United States for declaring war against the British Empire. The Royal Navy attacked the region as the home of the national capital, as a heartland of economic resources. The naval raids created an opportunity for the enslaved to escape and become free. Hundreds enlisted in the British service as sailors and marines or served as laundresses and nurses. And their assistance helped the British to capture Washington, D.C. and later to attack Baltimore. After the war, the refugees became free in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Trinidad. In partnership with Fort McHenry National Historic Site and Shrine. Light refreshments will be served.

Seventy years ago, more than six thousand Allied ships carried more than a million soldiers across the English Channel to a fifty-mile-wide strip of the Normandy coast in German-occupied France. It was the greatest sea-borne assault in human history. The code names given to the beaches where the ships landed the soldiers have become immortal: Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah, and especially Omaha, the scene of almost unimaginable human tragedy. The sea of crosses in the cemetery sitting today atop a bluff overlooking the beaches recalls to us its cost. Please join us as author Craig Symonds discusses his new book, Neptune: The Allied Invasion of Europe and the D-Day Landings.
