Baltimore is the largest economic hub and city in all of the great state of Maryland. It is known for its cool and quirky neighborhoods, great harbor, the world famous Johns Hopkins Hospital and its unique museums. It is shocking that Baltimore hasn’t been labeled a historical destination because if you pay attention, you will find that Baltimore is rich with history.

The city was named after Lord Baltimore and it was settled in the beginning parts of the 17th century. Baltimore’s waterfront, which is now engulphed by attractions, restaurants and shops, was what made Baltimore the chosen hub for the English and the tobacco trade. Baltimore had moved on to include sugar production as one of their main industries by the 18th century.

Baltimore is a major trading and seafaring community and they played a major role in the proceedings that helped to shape the history of the United States, which included the American Revolution. In anguish from the commerce regulations and taxes that the English tried to execute, angry merchants got together to sign agreements that would have them avoid trading with Britain. Adding to the losses the merchants from Britain were experiencing, leaders moved to Baltimore so they could join the resistance. This is the stuff that energized the city of Baltimore and between the years 1776 and 1790, the population of the city doubled and by the time 1800 rolled around, the population had doubled once more. As far as ports of entry for Europeans go, Baltimore was once ranked second. In addition, because of the Revolutionary War, the number of black residents increased a great deal because Britain offered them freedom following the war if they were escaped slaves. Even though Baltimore allowed slavery, there were more free blacks in the city than any other city in the South.

Baltimore profited greatly off of trading overseas. Britain tried to stop America from being the country that “ruled” the sea and because of this, in 1812 American declared war. In 1814, British forces attacked Baltimore. Francis Scott Key was on a British ship trying to negotiate for the freedom of a prisoner during the Battle of Baltimore. He rehashed what happened in The Star Spangled Banner. It was a poem that would end up being the national anthem of the United States.

After the war, Baltimore went through a big period of growth. Foreign trade commenced and the flour trade really took off. Flour mills were all over Baltimore by 1825. Baltimore was connected to all parts of the Midwest because of the National Road, which is now known as US Route 40. The completion of the Erie Canal by the city of New York, Baltimore’s grip on trans-Allegheny traffic was threatened. The business people of Baltimore started the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad which ended up being the first common carrier railroad in the United States. This made Baltimore a hub of manufacturing and shipping and also the second biggest municipality in America.

Fun Facts About Baltimore

Even though there are a great deal of hip hop artists, rock bands and they have the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore is known for their jazz music.

Outside of great shops and restaurants at Harborplace, the sightseeing tours and cruises of old ships like the USS Constellation, you can take a nice walk or run at the Inner Harbor. In addition, to the beautiful things you can see at the Inner Harbor, you can also go see the National Aquarium. The aquarium is packed full of over 17,000 amphibians, mammals, fish, reptiles and birds. The Aquarium recently opened their wonderful blacktip reef exhibit. This reef is a replication of an Indo Pacific reef that houses over 700 creatures of the sea including 20 blacktip reef sharks.

Baltimore is the home of the national anthem. The Star Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key and was written about the Battle of Baltimore where the British were held at bay at Fort McHenry by American soldiers.

You can actually go see the home where Edgar Allan Poe grew up. It is located at 203 Amity Street in West Baltimore and it is named the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum.
