Written by on June 12, 2013 in Neighborhood News - No comments

Aisquith’s Sharp Shooters, a Dundalk-based War of 1812 living history unit, to hold a remembrance of Baltimore’s defenders who made the ultimate sacrifice on Sept. 12-14, 1814.

The remembrance will be held on Saturday, June 15, 9 a.m.-noon, and will consist of a one-and-a-half mile walk over ground where citizen soldiers laid down their lives. The walk will cover the area from where the first skirmishes with the British took place, to the site of the Battle of North Point, and then to where the wounded on both sides were treated.

Other living history units have been invited to join, and the public is welcome.

The group will be meeting at the McDonald’s at North Point Blvd. and Old Battle Grove Rd. between 8:30-9 a.m. The walk will begin at 9 a.m., with a brief interpretation and ceremony at each historical site. For more info., contact Alex Radzius at 410-215-4880 or a.radzius@yahoo.com.
