Who: This event is free and open to the public.
What: The University of Baltimore proudly hosts the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 Lecture Series.
These engaging public discussions explores the causes and effects of the War of 1812. From little-known facts about the war to the ways it impacted Americans of all kinds—including those who had families living on both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the border—the series will shed light on a period of history worth revisiting for its politics, economics, color and message of reconciliation.
