The imponderability of this bold and courageous move of the citizen soldiers to convict to stand fast can only be equaled by their resulting success and how they also continue to impact our lives today. May of 1814 marked thbeginning of a lifelong brotherhood of remembrance which roused the city and nation in patriotism and a sense of nationhood. It was the courage of the Defenders of Baltimore which inspired the lyrics of the Star-Spangled Banner, and the strength of their organization which served to perpetuate the spirit of 1814 into the 20th century - contributing to the adoption of our national anthem in 1931.

Too precious to leave to extinction, the Defenders of Baltimore passed their brotherhood and leadership to their sons - now The Society of the War of 1812 in Maryland. This book is the Bicentennial publication of The Society of the War of 1812. With an abundance of new findings and fresh insights contained in its pages, our rich heritage over the past 200 years is seen in retrospect for the first time. Robert Cummins is the Bicentennial Committee Chairman for the Society of the War of 1812 in Maryland.

He is descended from five veterans of the Battle of North Point, including 3rd Lt. Robert Cummins of Archibald Dobbins Company of the 39th Regiment, Maryland Militia, who stood firm in the intense action of holding up a collapsing American left flank in Baltimore on September 12th 1814. The author is a software engineer living in Maryland with his wife, son, and two dogs.
