George Washington called the Maryland regiments of the Continental Army his “Old Line” – a term of admiration that became one of the state’s nicknames. Since then – through the War of 1812, Civil War, wars of the 20th century and beyond – Marylanders have served with distinction in conflicts that have shaped American history. Pay tribute this Veterans Day at parades in Brunswick (Frederick County) and LaPlata (Charles County) on Nov. 6; Leonardtown (St. Mary’s County), Nov. 11; and in Bel Air (Harford County), Nov. 10-11.

Decoy Bay traditions
Oysters, rockfish and waterfowl are signature elements of the Chesapeake Bay in November. Oysterfest, Nov. 5 at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, offers all things oyster – plus live music, boat rides and fun contests. The following weekend, Nov. 11-13, Easton hosts the 41st annual Waterfowl Festival – a wildlife arts & sportsman’s expo. And, Nov. 19-20, more than 200 boats compete in the Maryland Saltwater Sportsfishermen’s Association’s Chesapeake Bay Fall Classic – the season’s largest rockfish tournament.
