We hosted a rebroadcast of a segment where we learned about a dramatization of an important part of Baltimore’s history. Citizens Stand: Battle for Baltimore 1814, a collaborative effort between the Baltimore School for the Arts, Maryland Historical Society, and National Park Service, is a production of three short plays about the battle that led to the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. The plays are: “Woman of All Work” by Nora Worthington; “Loyalties Tested” by Natalie Pilcher; and “The Common Defense” by Paul Christensen. Our guests are: Nora Worthington, Instructor ofCostume Design at the Baltimore School for the Arts; and Kristin Schenning, Education Director of the Maryland Historical Society who has been involved in the project partnership for the past five years and also works at Fort McHenry.
