Artifacts And The The Peale Museum

From Maryland In The War of 1812, Rembrandt Peale and the Peale Museum, which was opened on August 14, 1814, during the War of 1812:

Peale’s museum became the first to display the relics of Britain’s naval arsenal for the curiosity for those who had heard, but not seen a British shell or Congreve rocket, so eloquently noted in “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
