History buffs, families, young and old, all were in hand to tour Fort McHenry, and give a hand in lowering the huge 15 star flag, and replace with the smaller Stars and Stripes for the evening. Well...

We loved the fort and the tour, we’ve visited several forts in the past and this was one of the best. Even participated in the raising of the flag! Suggest you put it on your list
