The Prince George’s County Committee on the War of 1812 and the Battle of Bladensburg Task Force are committed to telling the story of the military actions and civilian life that preceded, surrounded, and followed the march across the county, the Battle of Bladensburg on August 24, 1814, and the burning of Washington D.C. Through a Visitor Center, walking and bike tours, sites, events and signage, the Committee and the Task Force are working with partners across the area to ensure a complete visitor experience.
