UPDATE:  Due to weather, the dates of the lecture have been changed to 1/28 and 2/4–same time and location.

What caused the War of 1812? We ask Fells Point town crier Jack Trautwein, who’s giving two upcoming lectures at the Fells Point Visitor Center in honor of the war’s bicentennial. Titled The Amazing Story, the lectures take place tomorrow at 1 p.m., and then again on January 28 at 1 pm, and then again February 4.

You can learn more about the campaign for a monument to the Fells Point Privateers of 1812 here.
