ANNAPOLIS, Md. — In honor of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, the U.S. Naval Academy has developed a self-guided walking tour that includes 10 stops related to the war.

Five sites are at the Naval Academy — Mahan Hall, HMS Macedonian Monument, the U.S. Naval Academy Museum, the HMS Confiance Cannon at Macdonough Hall north and the Joseph Nicholson Home and Bandstand; and five are within the city of Annapolis — St. John’s College, St. Anne’s Church, the Maryland State House, the Chase-Lloyd House and the Historic Annapolis Foundation.

The tours are available through October 2014.
