1889 Maryland Exposition

Baltimore, Maryland

The exposition highlighted the natural and industrial resources of “the Field; the Forest; the Mine; and the Waters of Chesapeake Bay.” President Benjamin Harrison open the event. The exposition celebrated the war of 1812 and the bombard of Fort McHenry in 1814. Four so-called dollars were struck in various compositions for this exposition.
