The next step was to decide where would be the best choice? Mostly when we want to get away from Annapolis, we head to D.C., so I suggested a change up and head to good old Bawlmore. If you aren't from Maryland, you are probably thinking, "OMG! That show from The Wire?!?". Ok, yes, there are some areas of Baltimore that may closely resemble that show, but Baltimore has much more to offer! Great sites and great food too!
During a bombardment from British troops, the Americans managed to keep hold of the fort through out the "bombs bursting in air." It struck me that most people would think the Star-Spangled Banner was written during the Revolutionary War, and not the often forgotten War of 1812.
Not only did we get the President Street Station stamp, we also got one for the Underground Railroad Freedom Network and the Baltimore National Heritage Area! 5 stamps!
