A youth play

Caroline, Banner of Freedom


Based on real people and incidents, this sixty minute play for young and middle school audiences is about a fourteen-year old girl, Caroline Pickersgill, who helps her mother in a flag-making business.  On August 24, 1814, the bustling port of Baltimore discovers that the British Army has attacked and burned Washington D.C. When Baltimore realizes it will be the next city to be attacked by the British, Caroline and her cousins, Eliza, fourteen and Ben, fifteen are swept into the city's frantic fears and preparations as it tries to defend itself against the well-equipped British Army.

Caroline is proud of her part in helping make the flag flying over Fort McHenry but soon experiences the bombardment of the fort and the attack on their city. She learns what happens to Francis Scott Key and how he created our national anthem.  Caroline and her cousins approach the challenges they face in different ways and learn what it's like to fight for one's country and to discover whether they and their flag will survive.
