With milestone commemorations honoring the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, bicentennial of the War of 1812 and Harriet Tubman centennial, 2013 promises to be a year filled with landmark celebrations leading up to the Star-Spangled Spectacular in 2014.
Civil War Anniversary
In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the B&O Railroad Museum launched the exhibit The War Came by Train. Part of the five-year commemoration from 2011 until 2015, the exhibit spotlights the role of the transportation industry during the war and includes numerous historical artifacts on public display for the first time.
