Subject: Letters of Support Needed for
Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
Date: Tue, 6 Jan 2004 12:42:05 -0500
From: "Jefferson Patterson Park Museum"
The War of 1812 Battles of St. Leonard Creek (June
8-10 and June 26, 1814) were Maryland's largest naval
engagement. These battles took place where Jefferson
Patterson Park and Museum (JPPM) stands today. JPPM is
an important site on the proposed Star-Spangled Banner
National Historic Trail. Over the past two years, the
National Park Service has conducted an eligibility and
feasibility study in order to determine whether the
Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail should be
designated a national historic trail within the
National Park Service's Trail System.
Now the time has come where we need your participation
and your support!
The Maryland Office of Tourism Development is
requesting that you take a minute and write a letter
to the Secretary of the Interior, as well as to our
State Senators and Delegates (names and addresses are
in the attachment) convincing them to designate the
Star-Spangled Banner a National Historic Trail, (a
sample letter is attached too). Also, please feel
free to pass this request on to anyone or any
organization that would be interested in helping us by
writing a letter as well! We need all the support we
Thank you very much for your time. If you need
additional information, please contact Alice W. Cook,
Resources Development Specialist, Maryland Office of
Tourism Development by telephone at 410-767-6295 or
by email at ACook@....

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
--Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment(1764).
To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.
"Let your gun be your constant companion on your walks this gives exercise to the body and independence to the mind no free man shall ever be debarred the use of guns" - Thomas Jefferson.
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for
lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." - Benjamin Franklin 1759

make sure it recieves the protection it is due. However, I have a
question about all this and I hope soome one will be able to answer
it. If it becomes a part of the trail will it be under the
supervision of the NPS. The NPS does great things and I have many
friends that work for the NPS, but the current NPS policy of no
opposing line tacticals is a misjudgement in my humble opinion and I
just hope that if this becomes a part of the trail will it still be
able to run the GREAT event that they hold their every year in the
same manner and spirit it has been held in the past.

the official NPS document for their policy and have worked with the
NPS very close for the past seven years. They are our Land Lord after
all. The own the Marine Barracks in Boston from which we run our unit
when not on the ship. So its not just a statement from a guy who just
wants to pop of his pretty musket for the heck of it.
Take care all
