This is a very special week in Baltimore.
Tall ships begin arriving today as part of week-long festivities celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore. The day is revered by Baltimoreans as the day their city defeated the most powerful navy in the world. The day is revered by our country because it commemorates the writing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
This week’s celebration will include living history demonstrations, historic ship tours, live music, fireworks and my personal favorite: a performance by the Blue Angels.
O’ Say Can You See?
