One day and 200 years after British troops arrived at Concord Point Lighthouse and burned much of the city, Havre de Grace relived the experience.
As part of the city’s War of 1812 bicentennial commemoration, reenactors sailed into Concord Point on The Sultana, which had been docked at the Tidewater Marina.
On land, reenactors responded with gunfire and cannons on behalf of the citizens of Havre de Grace.
Once the British came ashore after 10 a.m., the two sides exchanged gunfire intermittently between Concord Point Lighthouse, Market Street and Saint John St. The conclusion came at the Lock House around 3 p.m. Saturday.
