A talk at the Fort Delaware Society
2711 Staff Lane, Delaware City, DE 19706
Sunday, October 20, 2019
Program from 1:00 pm
William Connery will give a presentation on
Fort McHenry During the Civil War
As mobs rioted on Pratt Street on April 19, 1861, Baltimore’s most famous Fort was about to be taken over by Southern Sympathizers. You know how this story ends, but do you know what happened at the Fort during the War Between the States, where even a grandson of Francis Scott Key was held prisoner? William Connery will shed some light on this important part of Baltimore’s History.

William S. Connery grew up on East Pratt Street, in the shadow of the Patterson Park Pagoda, where 10,000 American Patriots awaited the arrival of British troops, while the British Navy was attacking Fort McHenry. He has a degree in history from the University of Maryland–College Park. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal, for his History Press book, Civil War Northern Virginia 1861 and he has a second book, Mosby’s Raids in Civil War Northern Virginia. He can be reached at william.connery©verizon.net.
