My daughter and I visited Fort McHenry on a recent visit to the Baltimore area. Frankly speaking I didn't realize the Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner here but I wasn't paying...

Subject of Star Spangled Banner. The introductory film ends with one of the most emotional experiences at a historical site. Stood among group of veterans who went openly.

Fascinating place with history that we had no idea had happened here. Very helpful volunteer staff and was nice to just be able to roam the grounds. The movie was very informative
