Be warned. Havre de Grace is going to be under attack during the first weekend in May 2013 as angry enemy soldiers storm ashore, occupying this tourist hotspot at the top of the Chesapeake Bay.

Musket fire, roaring cannons, shouts of military orders, and martial music will reverberate through old streets in a fine historic district.

You don't need to worry, however. This is part of Maryland's War of 1812 Bicentennial observance as Havre de Grace remembers one of the most dramatic moments in Maryland history and recalls an epic moment in its past. It was 200 years ago that the devastating attack occurred here during the nation's second war with Britain.

Planning for this event has been going on for a couple of years now and Havre de Grace is looking forward to welcoming thousands of visitors to town for this once in a lifetime observance.
