Board Description

The Battle of Bladensburg

our great shame

In August, 1814, Major General Robert Ross led veterans of the Napoleonic wars against several groups of American militia. Unfortunately for the Americans, Brigadier General Tobias Stansbury abandoned his position on Lowndes Hill and neglected to burn the bridge after withdrawing his troops to the west. After a series of miscommunications and strategic blunders, the American militias broke and fled allowing the British to march on Washington D.C.
