June 13, 2012 - June 19, 2012
On September 13th, 1814, British troops launched a twenty-five hour long attack on Fort McHenry, the fort guarding a water approach to Baltimore. Despite the intensity of the British assault, Major George Amistead and his men refused to surrender. It was here, “by dawn’s early light,” that Francis Scott Key was inspired to write “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
