The bicentennial of the War of 1812, a conflict sometimes referred to as the "Second American Revolution," has generated renewed interest in this period in our nation's history. Fortunately for us, one of the best resources for historical materials and artifacts relating to the war, the Maryland Historical Society, is right down the street from us here in Baltimore. Through a partnership with MdHS, we have just published a digital collection of War of 1812 manuscripts, paintings, prints, weapons, military accessories, and more. Many thanks to MdHS staff for collaborating with us on this project, particularly Jenny Ferretti, MdHS' Curator of Photographs and Digitization Coordinator.
