HISTORY
21 May 2010
This star shaped fort is best known for its role in the War of 1812 when it successfully defended Baltimore Harbor from an attack by the British navy in the Chesapeake Bay.

Learn what inspired Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner." My 10yo and 5yo daughters really enjoyed walking around the fort.
