Fort McHenry

Fort McHenry is located in Baltimore, Maryland.  It is where Francis Scott Key wrote the poem that would become "The Star-Spangled Banner".  The fort is quite simple, but is very beautiful.

The Parks Service has worked hard to maintain a lot of the original buildings and even has a flag pole with the American flag flying in the same spot it flew on that fateful night when Key wrote the infamous words.

Here are a few shots.
