Shoot 'em up

Watch state, national and international marble-shooting champions demonstrate their expertise at the eighth annual Greater Baltimore-Washington Marble Show in Perry Hall Saturday. Watch or join in the American "ringer" and British marble games. Enter a Chinese checker tournament, get a free appraisal of your marble collection, attend an auction of marbles and marble-related items, and perhaps win one of the door prizes, including a jar of marbles.

The show takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Perry Hall Middle School, 4300 Ebenezer Road. Admission is $1 for adults and 25 cents or one marble for children. Call 410-931-1723.

Military maneuvering

During the Civil War, Union soldiers were stationed at Fort McHenry to keep the city of Baltimore from falling into Confederate hands. This weekend, Union infantrymen will take over the historic fort once again to give visitors a close look at what Civil War soldiers went through during winter training exercises there. Soldiers will mount guard, practice drilling, learn proper musket-firing techniques and more.

The re-enactment takes place Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fort McHenry is at the east end of East Fort Avenue. Admission to the re-enactment is free; entry to the fort is $5 for ages 17 and up, and free for those under 17. Call 410-396-3453.
