When Baltimore celebrated The Star Spangled Banner, no one mentioned that the flag was sewn by a widow with a free black apprentice or that Fort McHenry was rebuilt by borrowed slaves. Baltimore had a rich and complex working-class community after the War of Independence, including the largest free black community in the United States. This course will present a look at the culture and history of the city, which witnessed both enormous changes and resistance to these changes, from a new perspective of "the common folk."
