 Samuel Smith: Patriotism, Profits, and the Panic of 1819

Samuel Smith is widely remembered as a U.S. Senator, a patriot, and veteran of the Revolution and the War of 1812. However, he was also a merchant, and his firm was intimately involved in the first great financial disaster of the new republic. How much did he know?

Baltimore History Evenings is a series of presentations and discussions on Baltimore’s history.

Baltimore History Evenings are held at The Village Learning Place (directions) at seven o’clock PM on the third Thursday of every month from January to June.
