Historic Walking Tour of Downtown Baltimore led by Jefferson Gray ’78
Join the Yale Club of Washington for a historic walking tour of downtown Baltimore, led by Jefferson Gray ’78. This two- to two-and-a-half hour walking tour, given by a lawyer and Yale history major, will cover Baltimore’s history from its earliest days through the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Great Fire of 1904, and the start of the civil rights movement. In the course of the tour, you will see where Captain John Smith explored, the Continental Congress met, Francis Scott Key composed The Star Spangled Banner, a great commercial empire began, mobs rioted, Abraham Lincoln evaded assassins, several famous court cases were tried or decided, German agents plotted acts of sabotage, Thurgood Marshall practiced law, and George Washington, John Adams, the Marquis de Lafayette and Woodrow Wilson slept! Space is limited, so register soon to secure a spot! Family and friends are welcome.
