This is my first attempt at blogging, so bear with me. Baltimore, soon to become renowned as the site of Alpha Chi’s Super-Regional Convention, is famous as the town where The Star-Spangled Banner was written. The author, Francis Scott Key, witnessed the bombardment of Baltimore’s defenses during the War of 1812 from a British naval vessel. As the Anthem says, the Stars and Stripes was still proudly waving at “the dawn’s early light,” after a full night of battle. Fort McHenry, where the flag once flew, is a must-see on your visit.
Baltimore is my home town, so if I can give you any information, I would be proud to help. My email address is posted. See you there.
