In August 1776, troops from Maryland faced down a large British army at the Battle of Brooklyn, the first major battle of the Revolutionary War. These soldiers, now called the "Maryland 400," took heavy casualties but bought time for the rest of the American army to escape. Who were these Maryland soldiers, and what happened to them in the months and years after the battle? Owen Lourie, Director of the Archives' Finding the Maryland 400 project, will share stories about these soldiers and about Maryland during the American Revolution.
Get a sneak peek at our newest collection of General William Smallwood letters after the talk. Please join us! All are welcome! Feel free to bring both your lunch and any questions you may have!
