Battle of Caulk's Field

Losing the skirmish made the surviving British troops very thirsty, as they prepared to retreat during the 200th commemorative reenactment of the Battle of Caulk's Field on Aug. 31, 1814. Local militia mounted a successful defense, killing the British commander and 14 British soldiers and sailors, who were forced to retreat. Caulk's Field is considered the best-preserved War of 1812 battlefield site in Maryland.
