War of 1812

To distract attention from his plan to use the Patuxent to seize the capital, British Rear Admiral Cockburn conducted  a series of raids along the Potomac.  First hit was Leonardtown.  On July 19, 1814, 1,500 troops assailed the town via a land and sea attack.  Learn more about the story from the wayside marker at the park overlooking Breton Bay and from the exhibit at Tudor Hall.
