This past month I enjoyed a step back to the year of 1812, The docents and myself dressed in that period and open the house for a guided tour of actual artifacts from the War of 1812.
On display was the Guerriere's bell and a model of the U.S.S. Constitution. Part of this wonderful exhibit was navigation equipment used on early
Naval ships. One of the docents gave information about the battle with the Guerriere.
