Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine
January 10, 2021
The scenes of Fort McHenry ... now a National Monument and Historic Shrine (FOMC) ... should remind all Americans of its valiant defense during the Battle of Baltimore on September 13-14, 1814 ... that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the words that became the U.S. national anthem. The fort's history holds many other stories too ... from the Civil War to World War II.
