County Executive Leopold Announces War of 1812 Commemoration Event at Hancock’s Resolution
Committee will develop program
Annapolis, MD (June 22, 2011) - County Executive John R. Leopold today announced that a special commemoration event will be held next year at Hancock’s Resolution in Pasadena to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.
"Our County has many ties to the War of 1812, and Hancock’s Resolution was a signal point to warn Baltimore of the approaching British fleet," County Executive Leopold said. "We are very excited to get started planning this event."
Historical records indicate that on August 24, 1812, the British spotted a schooner on Bodkin Creek that was possibly the famous Lion, known as a privateer vessel that was doing great damage to British ships. The crew saw the British coming, and removed the sails before abandoning ship and landing at Hancock’s Resolution. Normally the British would have taken the vessel because it was very useful in navigating shallow waters, but with no sails they decided to burn the Lion. The wreckage has never been found.
Jim Morrison, President of the Friends of Hancock’s Resolution, has agreed to serve on a committee appointed by County Executive Leopold established to plan the commemoration.
