Ross Monument Rostrevor

200 years Commemoration.

The band will provide a concert at the Ross Monument, on the Warrenpoint to
Rostrevor Road, on Saturday evening 13 September 8pm to 9pm.

The monument, erected in 1826, celebrates Major General Robert Ross victory over the American forces in Bladensburg in 1814 and his entry into the capital, Washington. He is reputed to have burnt down all the public buildings including the presidential mansion, and to have eaten the president’s breakfast, he having left in a hurry.
