Sixty or so people joined today's historic walk commemorating the War of 1812 bicentennial. The village remembered local heroes of the Battles of Baltimore and North Point and the Bombardment of Fort Mc Henry when Francis Scott Key wrote what would become The Star Spangled Banner.
Time was spent inside #31 Waverly Fire House and outside old Waverly Post Office, on Olmsted Green and along Merryman Lane before a new historic marker was unveiled in front of old Waverly Town Hall.
Young, old and many in between heard about our proud rich history along the way.
Poetry in Community and Midway Fair performed while everyone ate a catered meal prepared and served by Trinidad Gourmet.
Be sure to visit Waverly Library during the next two weeks to see an exhibit on the War of 1812 in Maryland and plan to get to Fort Mc Henry sometime soon, too.
