The Calvert Marine Museum, in partnership with Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum and the College of Southern Maryland is launching an exciting speaker’s series that will focus on the War of 1812. The series titled War of 1812: A Legacy of Division offers a wide range of perspectives on this “forgotten conflict.” All talks will take place in the new auditorium at the College of Southern Maryland Prince Frederick Campus on Sundays at 3:00 p.m. Post-lecture discussions led by either Dr. Ralph Eshelman or Dr. Bradley Gottfried will facilitate a dialogue between the presenter and the audience.
