A History of Caulk's Field  The Battle  Event Program  Site Map   




The Caulk's Field House, built in 1743, has never before been open to the public. Don't miss this rare chance, on June 28, 2014, to peek inside the house that majestically stood on the grounds of Kent County's only military battle in the War of 1812. On August 31, 1814, Kent County, Maryland militiamen turned back a British night attack at the Battle of Caulk's Field. This special gathering is a prelude to a once in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness a re-enactment of the battle, which will be staged on the very day, August 31st and on the same battlefield.

In addition to a tour of the Caulk's Field House, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and a casual relaxed atmosphere, special presentations will be made by Don Shomette, Ph.D., author of Flotilla: The Patuxent Naval Campaign in the War of 1812 and Julie Schablitsky, Ph.D., R.P.A., Chief Archaeologist, Caulk's Field Archaeological Study. As a special treat Elizabeth Beckley of Preservation Maryland and Michael Bourne, author of Historic Homes of Kent County will be available to answer questions about the house. Please kindly respond below by June 19th.
