Young Defenders of the Maryland Historical Society

The Young Defenders are a committee of energetic young people who are excited about Maryland’s culture. The committee plans fun social events to connect the next generation of history lovers to the important mission of the Maryland Historical Society, celebrating where we came from and where we live.

Come join us at our next event and see for yourself why they are so popular! Past events have included historic bar crawls, summer happy hours at the museum, meet-ups at historic sites, kayaking sunken WWI ships, and of course our signature annual Bash!
