Fort McHenry is a waterfront fort in Maryland. It is most famous for the battle centered on it in the War of 1812, when the British pounded it throughout the night from their ships in the water. Francis Scott Key, an American who was watching the battle, wrote “The Star-Spangled Banner”, a song which eventually became the American National Anthem, about that battle.
Fort McHenry is a great place to visit to get a glimpse of Army life of two-hundred years ago. The structures have been preserved, giving it an authentic feel.
