The uniforms for this week's Maryland War of 1812 Bicentennial are...interesting.
This morning, an article about this uniform said: "Yes, that's the outline of a Terrapin on the helmets." Not so much. I can see how the shape sort of looks like a turtle, but it's pretty obvious that it's not the outline of a Terrapin with the American flag on it--it's the outline of Fort McHenry with the American flag on it! The article has since been corrected.
