  • Star Spangling

    I feel like I’ve been star-spangled celebrating since I arrived in Baltimore three years ago. My first bike ride was out to Fort McHenry where I found myself actually tearing up a little at the Visitor’s Center film. That part where the star-spangled banner is waving and the song is playing and then the screen rises slowly to expose a view of the Star-Spangled Banner waving out over the fort? Even my deeply cynical heart can melt a bit, at least until I start to remember the terrible shit that’s been done in the name of patriotism and war. Then I started researching the War of 1812 for a book project about Baltimore museums, and suddenly I knew more about the War of 1812 than 99 percent of people I know. 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.
