Ruckle served with the Washington Blues, a company of the 5th Regiment, Maryland Militia (Maryland National Guard), at the Battle of North Point. The 5th Maryland Regiment saw action during the War of 1812 at both the Battle of Bladensberg Elting, p.217 and the Battle of North Point. At Bladensberg the regiment was routed, along with the rest of the army, by the advancing British, but at North Point they proved more effective. There, the Maryland Volunteers under General John Stricker bore the brunt of the British attack, holding off the enemy long enough for the defense of Baltimore to be successfully shored up. The battle formed part of the larger Battle of Baltimore and proved a turning point in the War of 1812. * Article on the Maryland Militia at the Battle of North Point, at the National Guard website History During the 1790s, Haiti was the main place of exploitation sugar cane in the world, being also the most affluent of the French colonies. Haitians, whose country was populated by a majority slave (original Sub-Saharan Africa and Central Africa), rebelled against their owners and began fighting for independence. However, this rebellion caused a mass exodus encouraged by panic: Many whites of French descent and blacks, free and slave, emigrated to the United States seaports establishing large French-speaking communities in New Orleans, Norfolk, Baltimore, New York City and Boston. France was a good place to live only for college and for some Haitian middle class people, but most Haitians were poor. For this reason, many Haitians decided to emigrate to United States. This migration is basically developed between the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Thus, many Haitians living in the United States studied in college. After of this period there are four period of migrated en masse o United States in the history of Haiti: the United States occupation of Haiti (1915-1934); the period of the Duvaliers (1957-1986); and the overthrow of President Aristide (1991). Thus, Between 1957 to 1986, when François Duvalier and Jean-Claude Duvalier governed Haiti, the political persecution that suffer the Haitians caused that many Haitian professionals, the middle class, and students emigrated to others countries. Haitians in sought political asylum or permanent residence status in many countries such as the United States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, France, Dominican Republic. Between 1977 and 1981, 60,000 Haitian boat people landed in South Florida, most of them migrated to a neighborhood called "Little Haiti". In the 1980s, many Haitian immigrants arrived in the United States by boat on the shores of Florida. They were known as the "boat people." In these years was also a significant brain drain from Haiti, since early 1980s, Thousands of Haitian doctors, teachers, Social Workers and entrepreneurs from New York moved to Miami. Haitians also began working in restaurants and music stores. In 1986, 40,000 Haitians who came to the United States seeking political asylum, achieved permanent resident status. birth_date Commons:Category:Baltimore WikiPedia:Baltimore Dmoz:Regional North America United States Maryland Localities B Baltimore

Baltimore

'''Baltimore''' (

With a population of 622,104 as of July 1, 2013, Baltimore increased by 762 residents over the previous year, ending over six decades of population loss since its peak in 1950. The Baltimore Metropolitan Area has grown steadily to approximately 2.7 million residents in 2010; the 20th largest (List of metropolitan areas of the United States) in the country.

With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore has been dubbed "a city of neighborhoods", and has been more recently known as "Charm City", to go along with its older moniker of "The Monumental City" (coined by sixth President John Quincy Adams in 1827), and its more controversial 19th-century sobriquet of "Mobtown". The talents of writers Edgar Allan Poe and H.L. Mencken, jazz musician James "Eubie" Blake (Eubie Blake) and singer Billie Holiday, as well as the city's role in the War of 1812 and Francis Scott Key's writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner", which later became the American national anthem, have all contributed to the city's historical importance.

According to the Brookings Institution, almost a quarter of the jobs in the Baltimore region are science, technology, engineering and math positions. The Baltimore area is known for health and science, which is in part attributed to the prestigious Johns Hopkins University, with its extensive undergraduate and graduate schools, the University of Maryland at Baltimore (University of Maryland, Baltimore), and other smaller schools such as the University of Baltimore, the science-heavy University of Maryland, Baltimore County, (in Catonsville (Catonsville, Maryland)), Loyola University (Loyola University Maryland), Notre Dame University Maryland (Notre Dame of Maryland University), Stevenson University, (formerly Villa Julie College – in suburban Stevenson (Stevenson, Maryland)), Goucher College, (in suburban Towson (Towson, Maryland)), and the Maryland Institute College of Art.
