To all History majors, minors, and faculty members:
Looking to escape campus for an afternoon of fun in Inner Harbor with friends? Have you always wondered what inspired Francis Scott Key to compose “The Star-Spangled Banner”? If so, join the History Club and Professor LaGrand on our trip to Fort McHenry and Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD!
The trip will take place next Saturday, February 23. We’ll leave from Eisenhower circle at 9:00 AM and return to campus around 6:00 PM. The trip is free of cost. Just be sure to bring spending money for a meal and souvenirs.
We’ll begin our trip by visiting Fort McHenry, a prominent War of 1812-era military fortification and the birthplace of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Colin Riddle (History ’11), a Fort McHenry park ranger, and Professor LaGrand will talk to the History Club about the Fort’s patriotic heritage. From there, we’ll spend the afternoon perusing the city’s Inner Harbor, a popular commercial destination. We’ll eat lunch there. We’ll depart for campus during the late afternoon. We plan on arriving back at the College around 6:00 PM.
