- Oct 25, 2013Hello everyone,I wanted to introduce myself and our work. Maryland Milestones has been leading the development of the war of 1812 commemoration in Prince Georges County, MD with lots of partners - not the least of which is Riversdale House Museum folks who have held encampments for 17 years.I wanted to bring to your attention the planning that is happening for next summer (May- August). We plan on having events all over the county, culminating in a large reenactment on August 23 in Bladensburg.We are working now on setting up a registration system for that program and hope you consider coming. There will be stipends and camp amenities. Until that is up (and we will let you all know) please check out www.princegeorges1812.orgWe are very excited about this program and would love to have participants from around the US and Canada. If there are UK based groups, I would be interested in talking with you off list.Thanks so much and we shall communicate more soon. You can find me at the email below.
