Ferdinand Durang was born in Baltimore, Maryland circa 1785 to John, sorry I don’t have his mother’s name. In fact, I don’t have nothing about his early childhood. What I can tell you is that he was an American actor performing around the Baltimore area. He was a member of the Bowery Theatre Company. He did in 1831
While the history books don’t have a lot of information on him, they do have one important fact that I’ll bet you didn’t know. For in October of 1814 while performing at Captain McCauley’s tavern he was the first person to publicly sing “The Star-Spangled Banner”.
