The last thing Rosalie Stier Calvert needed was the War of 1812, but it came to her, nearly to her door at Riversdale plantation. See award-winning actress, Smithsonian scholar, and UM alumna Mary Ann Jung step back in history and into the life of Rosalie, whose son, Charles Benedict Calvert, founded the Maryland Agricultural College.
