The Battle of Caulk's Field
Scott Sheads, National Park Service staff historian at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, brings the Battle of Caulk’s Field to life in this lively lecture. The battle, which took place on August 31, 1814, was a clear American victory in a war with no ultimate winner or loser. Located in Kent County on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Caulk's Field remains one of the best surviving 1812 battlefields in America. Sheads will also discuss other historic landmarks and events across Maryland, which is home to more War of 1812 sites than the rest of the country combined. Projector and screen required.
