Thread Name: Origins: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Subject: RE: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Does anyone know what fire Charlie Poole was writing about? something contemporary to him,or something from history? One note in this thread suggests to me it might have referred to an event from the War of 1812... did the Brits burn Baltimore? (Yeah, I ought to know.)
