Built on a beautiful peninsula at the head of Baltimore Harbor, Fort McHenry and its brave defenders saved the city during the War of 1812 and gave America its National Anthem. The fort’s flag inspired Francis Scott Key to pen “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and the 15 brilliant stars of its enormous flag continue to inspire to this day.  – See more at: http://www.visitmaryland.org/list/top-things-see-and-do-central-maryland#sthash.SFEFDel4.dpuf
