Citizens of Baltimore

The Citizens of Baltimore welcome you to discover what it was like to live and work in Baltimore and Fort McHenry during the War of 1812.  The Citizens of Baltimore research and develop roles appropriate to the society and setting, such as committees formed to help in the defense of the city, the business proprietress, the merchant, the cook, the laundress and seamstress, the artisan and musician, and family members from all of the ranks and social classes of those who defended the City.  We honor the memory of these early Americans and pay tribute to an unnamed citizen killed during the bombardment of Fort McHenry.
