Caulkers of Fell’s Point helped U.S. stay afloat in 1812 BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Without a doubt, motorists and pedestrians pass the small wooden structure at 612 and 614 S. Wolfe St. everyday, clueless to its significance to the history of Baltimore and its role in American history. “These are very interesting buildings, in that they are the first white European buildings, or however you want to refer to it, that were built at these locations,” said J. Bryan Blundell, whose Dell Corporation is helping to preserve the two connected buildings. “What’s really unusual about them is that they’ve survived at all,” said Ellen von Karajan, Executive Director of the Federal Hill and Fell’s Point Preservation Society. “The thing about 18th Century wooden houses in Baltimore is that there’s only a handful of them—they’re rare, quite rare. The dwellings were most likely erected in the late 1700s, by Ann Bond Fell Giles. She was first married to William Fell, founder of Fell’s Point. After his death, she remarried and took the name Giles. “She was a corporate whiz-bang,” observed Blundell, noting that Giles instituted a “ground rent” on the properties— whoever bought them owned the buildings, but she owned the land and collected rent payments on it for life. “It’s a clever custom,” said Ellen von Karajan, Executive Director of the Federal Hill and Fell’s Point Preservation Society. “It still exists in Baltimore. It was a way she could be sure that she still had some income coming in.” Blundell believes that there’s a strong possibility that the the duplex—which was originally the southern half of a four-plex— was assembled from a kit that was cut at a

Photo by Erik Zygmont It looks like a rundown old duplex, and that’s what it is. But these two dwellings, which originally housed the caulkers that kept our privateers’ ships seaworthy during the War of 1812, have actually been standing since the late 1700s.

nearby shipyard. According to Blundell, Giles had a policy that land purchased for speculation cannot be without a structure. Von Karajan said that African American caulkers—the men responsible for sealing ships’ hulls with caulk—lived in the houses. Caulking was a father-to-son trade. Some caulkers were freemen; others were slaves. Frederick Douglass was a caulker at one point, von Karajan said. As ships and mariners played a huge role in the War of 1812, so did the caulkers who ensured that they stayed afloat, said von Karajan. While the caulkers labored, the mariners lived lives of adventure. Captain Henry Dashiell owned a house at the corner of Aliceanna St. and S. Broadway, now the location of Todd Conner’s restaurant.

Karajan marveled at a letter Dashiell had sent to his wife Mary, prior to the War of 1812. He was was writing from British prison; his ship had been taken by the British; and the whereabouts of his crew were unknown. Somehow he made it back to Fell’s Point. Dashiell would go on to be a privateer— or government-sanctioned pirate/sea warrior—during the War of 1812 and even after the signing of the Treaty of Ghent which ended it. “They didn’t have cell phones back then, so he didn’t know,” said von Karajan. Thomas Boyle, another famous privateer of the War of 1812, proclaimed a blockade of England and Ireland in response to England’s so-proclaimed blockade of CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

Fell’s Point has been chosen by the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project Inc. as the first port in the U.S. to commemorate the lives of the millions of Africans who died in the Middle Passage from Africa to the New World. “Baltimore was chosen as the first city because many African-Americans can trace their history to the port,” says Ann Chinn, executive director of MPCPMP. “Baltimore was a major port for the human trade in the Chesapeake region, and the Chesapeake region basically established the legal codes, practices and rationales for enslavement of Africans and their descendants that would be adopted by this nation from its founding,” says Chinn. The event will take place Aug. 23 at the Broadway Pier. There will be a dawn ceremony at 6:00 a.m. and a dusk ceremony at 7:15 p.m. Both will include sage burning, prayer, libation, calling of ancestors’ names and drumming. At the dawn ceremony, all present will be invited to take a cut flower to the water’s edge and place it in the harbor to remember those who died in the Middle Passage. The ceremony is multicultural and interfaith. Local participants include Rev. Dr. Cecil Gray, of Northwood-Appold United

Methodist Church; Marvin “Doc” Cheatham, president of the Baltimore chapter of the Local Action Network; and Frieda Minner, of the Baltimore American Indian Center, which is located in Upper Fells Point. In addition, students at the Crossroads School, located in East Harbor and run by the Living Classrooms Foundation, will have a role in the ceremony, and Morgan State University’s students in the Communications Center Video Department will be recording interviews at both ceremonies. The ceremony coincides with the International Day of Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition, Aug. 23, as declared by United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. Says Skipp Sanders, executive director of Baltimore’s Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African-American History and Culture and a supporter of the project: “It is my hope that this designation and marker placement will provide a comprehensive picture of Maryland’s AfricanAmerican history and will offer opportunities to highlight individuals like Frederick Douglass, who spent his formative years in Fell’s Point, and other Maryland heros who stand on the shoulders of those who were lost in the massive burial ground of the Atlantic Ocean.”

Humorist from Highlandtown checks out the funny side of... moving

by erik zygmont EDITOR@baltimoreguide.com

Like lots of humorists, Highlandtown native Michele Wojciechowski takes mundane, everyday-life occurrences and casts them in a new light, eliciting laugh-out-loud reactions from her audience. Her latest book, “Next Time I Move, They’ll Carry Me Out in a Box,” soon to be available on amazon.com, chronicles the trials and tribulations of buying a new house and selling the old one. For “Wojo,” the experience was particularly stressful, at least the selling part. “My husband Brad and I found our dream home when we weren’t seriously looking for it,” she explains. “Everything then spun into chaos. We had to have our own house on the market in one week.” The experience gave Wojo more than enough fodder for her column, “Wojo’s World,” published in local newspapers and at wojosworld.com. Not everything I write is about my life,” she says, “but I wrote the first couple columns (about the move), and I got a ton of feedback.” Wojo decided that since moving house had moved her, she could write about it.

sat down with her husband to convert the free-form style of her columns into the more linear time-line of a book. She also reconnected with her real estate agent, Sandy Smith, who became a good friend during the writing process. Wojo says that she has a “scary” photographic memory, but Smith helped her uncover some memories that she “must have blocked out from the stress.” Wojo began the book in February, and was finished by the beginning of June.

“Writing humor comes very, very naturally to me,” she says. “I grew up in a very funny family.” Wojo has self-published “Next Time I Move, They’ll Carry Me Out in a Box.” She decided on that route after having several conversations with agents in New York City. “I kept hearing the same thing: You’re so funny,” she says. One agent told her, “If you were famous or had a TV show, we could easily sell a book.” “‘Oh, really?’ was my response to that,” says Wojo. Since self-publishing, Wojo reports that many of her friends have said, “I’ve been thinking of doing that.” “They should,” she says. Wojo plans to officially launch her book with a night of comedy at her alma mater, The Catholic High School of Baltimore, 2800 Edison Highway, on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit thecatholichighschool.org or call 410-732-6200 x248.

Wojo’s childhood home is on the 3600 block of Foster Ave. She distinctly remembers a Highlandtown childhood, though she concedes that her old house is now technically in Butcher’s Hill. “People have been arguing about the boundaries of Highlandtown since it was established,” she laughs. She says that the great thing about growing up in Highlandtown was the close proximity of other kids. “There’s something to be said to be able to walk a block to your friend’s house and hang out,” Wojo says. She is still friends with many people from the old neighborhood. “Now that we’re adults, we can get together, and anything that made us anything but friends is gone.”

Editorial: Cleaning up is a no-brainer, but some of us are brainless Littering is bad; most likely everyone knows this. We applaud Bridget Parlato and everyone participating on her Baltimore Trash Talk page on Facebook for their willingness to take action: documenting litter problem areas, cleaning up those areas, and brainstorming long-term solutions. (See last week’s article, “Doing more than just talking trash.” We hear about the adverse effects of littering all the time: A neighborhood strewn with trash invites crime and lowers property values. Garbage in the streets finds its way into Chesapeake Bay. Litter everywhere can discourage new businesses from opening up shop and improving quality of life for all. Various solutions have been proposed by city officials and entities: completely ban-

ning polystyrene containers from Baltimore, adding a tax to plastic shopping bags, paying dedicated enforcement personnel to patrol neighborhoods and hand out fines, etc. We like Parlato’s argument—when you don’t put trash in its proper place, you negatively affect your own life. Until people realize and act on this, there will be trash in the streets. Even when you don’t consider the negative health and economic impacts of littering, Parlato’s argument rings true. When your living room has dust balls everywhere, or the kitchen trash stinks and needs to go out, life in your home is simply less pleasant. When your neighborhood or

business has trash blowing around on the sidewalk, it’s also less pleasant—for you, your guests, and your customers. It’s not different from, hypothetically speaking, neglecting to take an old banana or open bag of peanuts out of your work bag. You get banana slime and peanut dust all over everything, and you look foolish when you have to share your notes with a coworker. We would say that Parlato’s argument has a positive corollary: When you do put trash in the proper place, you positively affect your own life—or at least you can avoid some negatives. Editor’s Note: This lesson was reinforced

for me this morning as I was walking my 19-month-old daughter to daycare. She hasn’t been walking for very long, and she trips and falls a lot. Somewhere along the short route, I looked at the sidewalk and noticed shards of glass from a smashed bottle of Smirnoff Ice, or similar non-beer alcoholic beverage. I made sure she didn’t fall there—she could have seriously cut herself on the broken glass. “How terrible!” I thought. “Somebody should do something about this!” Well, it didn’t occur to me until I was at work, in a preachy editorial mindset, that somebody is me.

Yellowed Pages: News from 25 years ago Governor Schaefer opposes raising speed limit This story first appeared in the Aug. 20, 1987, edition of the Baltimore Guide. Drivers in Maryland already drive too fast and would only drive faster if the speed limit on the state’s interstate highways was raised to 65, Gov. William Donald Schaefer said recently. “I don’t favor it,” he said of the higher speed limit, which Congress has permitted states to adopt on certain rural portions of interstate highways.

“When you go 55, they go by you like you’re standing still,” Mr. Schaefer said when asked about th e65 mph limit at a State House news conference. “If you go 65, they’ll still go by you like you’re standing still.” Changing the speed limit on any of Maryland’s 400 miles of interstate highways would require an act of the General Assembly and the governor’s signature. One group, the Maryland chapter of the Citizens Coalition for Rational Traffic Laws, already has said it

will press the legislature next year to raise the limit. According to the State Highway Administration, the sections where the speed limit could be raised include parts of I-95 north of Baltimore and between the Baltimore and Capitol Beltways, I-83 north of the Beltway to the state line, I-70 between the Beltway and Frederick and west of Frederick, I-81 from the West Virginia line to the Pennsylvania line, and I-270 from Frederick to Gaithersburg.

Historic caulkers’ homes: Local workingmen enabled the more famous privateers CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

America. Boyle’s defiant decree states that while Britain didn’t have the power to enforce its blockade, he, Boyle, did have the power and the will to blockade Britain. British insurance rates skyrocketed, and British merchants put pressure on British politicians. “It became yet another pressure to end the war,” said Karajan. Boyle’s ship, the Chasseur, became “The Pride of Baltimore” upon his return.

CITY PET CENTER

“The caulkers were fundamental to being able to do all these things,” said Karajan. The homes on Wolfe St. are very simple. “All their life centered around the teapot and the table,” said Karajan. The homes were purchased in the 1960s or 70s by the Dashiell sisters, descendants of the famed mariner. “They came down here and were going to establish a museum that told their family’s story in the context of the greater thread of American history,” explained Karajan.

can do CSI on the building,” said Blundell. Blundell said that the long-term plan is to restore 612 S. Wolfe St. to a semblance of what it looked like in the 1812-era. The unit at 614, he said, will be a “stabilized artifact,” more or less preserved as-is for study and research. Von Karajan said that the properties are just one example of Fell’s Point’s status as an intact historic neighborhood. “Even Williamsburg is a recreation of what was there, but Fell’s Point is real,” she said.

The homes were inhabited into the 1980s, but bankruptcy court put out the tenants. The Preservation Society took ownership, saving the structure from the city’s “rehab or raze” policy. According to von Karajan, the structure exhibits the various building and home advances that occurred since the end of the 18th Century, including oyster-shell insulation, soft “salmon bricks” from the 1870s, and 1920s-vintage electrical wiring. “You can see vestiges of the ages, all in these two little rooms,” she said. “It really becomes a location where you

BIRDS HOUSE: It’s Time for some Orioles Baseball Then, the Orioles did what they do best: play Orioles baseball. Wei-Yin Chen got off to a rough start in the first. Chen allowed five runs in the first inning with only one out before settling down the rest of the way. Chen would eventually go on to pitch five innings, allowing only those five runs. Baltimore would get four of those runs back in the second inning. Chris Davis led off with a home run to get the O’s on the board before Nick Markakis doubled to drive in a run. J.J. Hardy then followed with a double of his own, driving in Markakis as

by Andy Mindzak

On Sunday, the Baltimore Orioles found themselves trailing by five runs after the first inning to the Detroit Tigers, a team that they are competing against for the final wild-card spot in the American League.

well as Taylor Teagarden, making the score 5-4. Baltimore would take the lead for good in the fourth inning, scoring three more times against Doug Fister. Nate McLouth tripled to right center and drove in Markakis and Hardy before Adam Jones drove in McLouth to give the O’s the edge, 7-5. Baltimore’s bullpen did the rest. Luis Ayala followed Chen by pitching a scoreless sixth inning before Darren O’Day pitched into the eighth before turning the ball over to Pedro Strop. Pedro did his job before giving way to Jim Johnson, who pitched a perfect

ninth, not allowing any runs, hits, or walks, earning him his 37th save of the season, which is only eight behind the franchise record of 45 set by Randy Myers in 1997. McLouth summed it up after the game: “I think today was a perfect example: being down 5-0 20 minutes into the game and shutting them down the rest of the way. That’s the type of team we’ve got, and it’s fun to be a part of.�

Nate certainly hit the nail on the head because that is the type of team they have this year, which has been a joy to watch. Currently Baltimore has the last wildcard spot, but there are a few teams in the hunt, namely the Tigers, Oakland Athletics, and Los Angeles Angels. These last 40 games of the regular season will certainly show us what the Orioles are made of. No matter what happens, they have certainly put on a great show this year.

410-288-6700 www.AdvanceRealtyDirect.com Now Interviewing New & Experienced Agents.

In the last two weeks we talked about things buyers can do to increase their odds of getting a great deal. Now, let’s talk about the flip side, being the seller. Making a mistake in selling a home can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in lost profit and prevent you from moving on with your life plan—whether it’s buying a larger home, downsizing, combining households or relocating. Often, home sellers make the same mistakes over and over. Avoiding these mistakes is easy and takes little time and effort on your part. Invest that little time and follow these guidelines for your home sale. Distress Selling: At times, selling quickly is unavoidable. That’s when knowing the right techniques to sell your home without looking desperate and making yourself a

target for low bidders really pays off. Know everything there is to know about the market before you list, and work hand in hand with the right real estate professional. Ensure that you are not settling for the first offer through the door. Best Home in the Neighborhood: Your home is one of your most personal possessions. Don’t be blind to flaws and needed cosmetic improvements. This will cause overvaluing of the home, hurting its chances to be sold. Listing with the right agent gives you a well informed third eye that will help you price your home at a fair market price. Limited Home Viewing: Buyers want to view a home on their own time schedule. Unfortunately their time schedule does not always coincide with your time schedule. Leave a lockbox or key with your agent so your home can be shown when you are not around. You never know if the one who got away was your buyer. Restrain Emotional Decisions: Don’t

allow a few hundred dollars to ruin a sale. That money will mean very little to you in the long run. Take a look at the big picture and react rationally. Use sound business judgment! Make Cosmetic Improvements: Prospects make up their minds within the first twenty minutes. First impressions can make all the difference in selling your home. Spending $1,200 on new carpet might add another $4,000 to the price of your home. Get an objective point of view from your real estate professional. They can provide you with a list of items that will maximize the profit of your home sale. Disclose Property Flaws: Property disclosure laws require sellers to list any flaws required by your state. If you are unaware of flaws or attempt to cover them up, you risk losing the sale and finding yourself in court. Get professional assistance from your agent who can introduce you to qualified inspectors and ensure the smooth sale of your home. For Sale By Owner: Most homeowners who decide to sell their own home do so because they believe they can save the com-

mission paid to the real estate agent. Everything has a price and selling a home carries a high one. The enormous amount of time and effort required to sell a home often surprises the "For Sale By Owner." Furthermore, many costly mistakes can be avoided with the right guidance. Refusing to Trust Your Agent: Would you tell a physician that you’ve decided to run your own tests and come to your own diagnosis? By choosing the right real estate professional, you can relax and trust their judgment. The right agent is a valuable team member who will protect your best interests and make your sale as profitable as possible. Know Your Market: Most homes that do not sell in their first listing period are priced too high. Conversely, most homes that sell quickly are priced too low and cheat the homeowner out of profits. You need to understand the market and evaluate the value of your home based on fact, not gut instinct or conventional wisdom. A professional agent knows the market, just as you know the market for your business. Choosing a Real Estate Professional Based on Personal Relationships: Home sellers often pick a friend or family

member as their agent. Choose an agent with a strong track record and aggressive marketing plan. A top producer knows the market well and can generate many buyers. Selling your home is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make! Base it on good, sound business sense and the rewards will add up. Before you make one of your most important decisions regarding your home sale, shouldn’t you become as informed as possible? By aligning yourself with a top agent
