An excellent museum exhibit on the impact on Maryland of the War of 1812 is on display at the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore. Here is a fine example of what a clever design team can do with a wealth of military and civilian artifacts and beautiful paintings. “In Full Glory Reflected” focuses on the importance of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay to the course of a war that lasted about 2½ years and whose scope swept from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico and from the coast of New England to the Mississippi River.
