MARYLAND AT A GLANCE

HISTORICAL CHRONOLOGY

MARYLAND IN THE WAR OF 1812

Maryland was as an important front during the War of 1812, and many citizens took up arms to defend their homes. Farmers, lawyers, physicians, and tradesmen, all took part in the defense of Maryland. Some elected officials yielded their positions to enlist with militia units or the regular army, while others retained their public offices, choosing to serve the needs of citizens and soldiers through budgeting, and policy.

Marylanders served the nation as well as their State. From privateers to major generals of the U.S. Army, many Marylanders left their homes to aid their country. They served on all fronts, supported the nation, and defended their homes.
