46526Bicentennial of the War in the Chesapeake
- Feb 3, 2013On this date, 200 years ago, a British squadron arrives at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and establishes a blockade of the bay. The squadron consists of the following frigates: HMS Maidstone (32), HMS Junon (38), HMS Belvidera (36) and HMS Statira (38), under the overall command of Capt George Burdett.
The War of 1812 has come to the Chesapeake.
Just a reminder that the bicentennial of the British assault on Havre De Grace is May 3-5. We should have registration starting within the week.
