War of 1812

Southern Maryland may not be one of the most well known theatres of the War of 1812, but this time period effected the area in great proportions and shaped the region as we know it today. On Sunday, September 15 at 3pm in the new auditorium at the College of Southern Maryland Prince Frederick Campus, exhibit consultant Dean Krimmel will present a talk titled: How the War of 1812 Marked Southern Maryland. Mr. Krimmel served as the consultant for both the Baltimore and Southern Maryland 1812 traveling exhibits, and will talk about how he takes original research, primary documents, local stories, and artifacts to craft an exhibit that will appeal to modern sensibilities. The exhibit will be on display to provide context after the lecture.

This lecture is part of the War of 1812: A Legacy of Division series which offers a wide range of perspectives on this “forgotten conflict.” The series is presented in celebration of the War of 1812 Bicentennial, by Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum, in partnership with the Calvert Marine Museum, and College of Southern Maryland. Funding is provided by the Maryland Humanities Council, Friends of Jefferson Patterson Park, Star-Spangled 200, Inc., and the Calvert Marine Museum. All talks will take place in the on Sundays at 3:00 pm. Post-lecture discussions led by either Dr. Ralph Eshelman or Dr. Bradley Gottfried will facilitate a dialogue between the presenter and the audience.
