My first bike ride was out to Fort McHenry where I found myself actually tearing up a little at the Visitor’s Center film.

Lo and behold, I was leading bicycle tours of historic sites related to the war and writing blogs about the Battle Monument and Fort McHenry and co-writing a water ballet about the war and pretty much annoying all of my friends and neighbors with War of 1812 factoids. I was deep in it, sunk down in the details, and by the time the big celebration weekend came around, I was, frankly, War of 1812-ed OUT.
