Defenders Day is when we celebrate the War of 1812... I took a number of lovely shots during the celebrations last Saturday... :)

Maybe in the future I too will have a proper costume... if I stop being lazy about making it... :P (I've been getting a number of leads on how to make them and find patterns lately... if you know anything, I would love to hear, as I'm not an expert but want a decent result when I do get around to it)
I was amused by the people sitting on the earthworks... :)
Some of whom clearly were not completely in the 1800's... ;)
Camp life :)
Old meets new...
Vantage point from where my family were sitting... :)
Panorama of troops lined up
Panorama of the camps
Governor Martin O'Malley spoke too... :)
This is the smoke pattern from the cannon

They raised a replica of the Star Spangled Banner
And finished it off with celebratory fireworks!
I might post more later if I feel like it... :D Enjoy!
