Baltimores Oyster era was rich with shucking and canning houses surrounding the Chesapeake Bay, canning oyster meat into 1-gallon containers under dozens of brand names so the Chesapeake's oysters could be shipped to such far-flung places such as the gold camps of Cripple Creek, CO. Reprinted newspaper articles tell of the ancient oyster wars on the Bay, fought at various times between oystermen from different states, between different groups of oystermen, or between oystermen and the state. It also tells of oystermen fighting for the Bay: In the 1890s, they had so much political clout that they forced Baltimore to construct a modern sewage treatment plant to protect water quality.
