The sold-out “Footsteps in History Walking Tour,” a living history interpretation of the Upper Chesapeake’s War of 1812 history, continues to receive lots of positive feedback. Patrons on the popular stroll into the past have offered many positive comments. Some were introduced to a new chapter in Cecil’s past, while for others the theatrical approach captivated them. And a good number have talked about how pleased they were to be introduced to a beautiful Cecil County town and historic district and it’s tourism destination spots.
Since next year marks the 200th anniversary of the British attack on Cecil and Harford counties, the event partners are discussing arrangements to offer the program regularly next year. We’ll keep reader informed.
Meanwhile, Dr. Ralph Eshelman, a War of 1812 scholar and consulting historian for the National Park Service, shared some additional photos from Sunday evenings walk that found over 100 people prowling Charlestown Streets. We thought you might want to see a few of these.
