Baltimore, You’ve Been Walking Your Dogs Over War of 1812 Artifacts

Patterson Park's Forgotten War of 1812 History

Photo by Anne, via Flickr.

Patterson Park may be quite tranquil now, but in September 1814 (when it was known as Hempstead Hill), the park hosted “thousands of militia men” as they prepared to defend Baltimore against a British land invasion in the War of 1812.

Baltimore Heritage has begun a month-long archaeological dig at Patterson Park at what they believe were the north and south ends of the War of 1812 entrenchment. (The headquarters were probably somewhere between the pagoda and the Friends of Patterson Park building.)

The excavation, which began Wednesday, has so far unearthed “bricks, mortar, glass, nails, shards of pottery, and a gunflint.” And no doubt countless cigarette butts and dog bones. In addition to artifacts from the war itself, the archaeologists hope to find evidence of Laudenslager’s butcher’s shop, from which Butcher’s Hill got its name. Read More →

101 Ellwood Lofts and Apartments

To live in—and love—this city, is to love its skyline. We may not have the most recognizable one in the world, but like the old song says, “the prettiest place on Earth is Baltimore at night.” We agree, of course. That’s part of why we live here. Our densely-packed cityscape is full of unique architecture and buildings that hearken back to some of the golden moments of American history. And when their windows light up at night, it’s certainly something to behold. Our rich legacy as a place where immense amounts of goods were produced and shipped is written all over this town.

The Blog Post That Exploded: Baltimore and Broken Hearts

2 Written by: | Monday, Feb 10, 2014 8:15am

baltimore-vacants

On Friday, Baltimore businesswoman Tracey Halvorsen published an article on Medium that went viral and sparked an impassioned cyber-discussion about crime and class privilege in Baltimore City.

In Halvorsen’s heartfelt personal essay “Baltimore City, You’re Breaking My Heart” is a litany of local tragedies — mostly in Southeast Baltimore — and political headscratchers surrounding the city’s crime problem that could make a resident want to get the heck out.

It goes like this:

“I’m tired of living in a major crime zone while paying the highest property taxes in the state.”

“I’m tired of hearing about incompetent city leaders who are more fixated on hosting the Grand Prix than dealing with thousands of vacant buildings that create massive slums, and rampant crime.”

“I’m tired of checking in on neighbor and Baltimore Sun editor Jon Fogg’s Go Fund Me page to see if his family has met their goal to raise funds to help him recover from the brutal attack he suffered as he went from his car to his front door after work.”

Halvorsen calls Baltimore’s crime rate “the elephant in the room,” calls out city officials for willfully ignoring it, and prescribes “more cops” to curb it. Read More →
