Fort McHenry, Baltimore

This is Fort McHenry in Baltimore. It was during the Battle of Baltimore, September 13-14th 1814, that Francis Scott Key was inspired to write the poem "Defence of Fort McHenry" which was later renamed "The Star Spangled Banner" and adopted as the national anthem of the United States.
