On May 3, 1813, under a scarlet morning sky, British forces commanded by Admiral George Cockburn attacked Havre de Grace. A small group of militia manning defensive cannons at Concord Point quickly retreated leaving only John O’Neill to commence firing upon the invaders.

Located where the Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay, the lighthouse anchors a waterfront promenade offering spectacular views.

Serve well chilled.
Pimlico Race Track is one of the oldest thoroughbred racetracks in the nation and the “deputed” home of the Preakness Stakes.
