Norton, Louis Arthur. Joshua Barney, Hero of the Revolution and 1812. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2000.
Annotation / Notes: Joshua Barney (1758-1818) was a naval hero in both the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Aside from his military exploits, this patriotic Marylander's life is closely associated with the history of the American flag. Barney is best known for the spirited action of the barge men under his command at the Battle of Bladensburg in 1814. Alone among the Americans at the battle, Barney and his men fought bravely against a superior British force.

Annotation / Notes: A comprehensive examination of the political background, military operations, and diplomatic closure of "Mr. Madison's War." It may have been forgotten in other areas, but for Maryland the War of 1812 was all too real. The Royal Navy roamed the Chesapeake with impunity, occupied Tangier Island, burned Frenchtown, attacked St. Michaels and Havre de Grace, sacked the nation's capitol after defeating the militia at Bladensburg, before meeting defeat after a combined sea-land attack on Baltimore City, which was immortalized in Francis Scott Key's "Star Spangled Banner." There is also a chapter on the infamous Baltimore riot of 1812.
