Living Historians around Cannon

The Fort McHenry Guard presents: DEFENDERS OF 1814!

From June 27 through August 19, Fort McHenry offers “hands on history” five days a week. 

  • 11 am & 2 pm - Musket or cannon demonstrations. Dressed in uniforms of the soldiers, sailors and civilians who defended Baltimore in 1814, this living history program offers an interactive touchstone to the past. 
  • 12 pm & 3 pm - Fife and drum music demonstrations. Hear the thunderous beat of drums and shrill of fifes of Fort McHenry’s nationally recognized fife and drum corps.
  • 11 am - 4 pm - Discover how average Baltimoreans contributed to the city’s defense against the British and see fashions from 1814, historic cooking, and a look at life on the home front.


Help hoist the grand Star-Spangled Banner flag, be a member of a crew or take part in a Ranger-led program!
