During the War of 1812, Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland played an integral role in halting the British troops. The Battle of Baltimore also served as the inspiration for Francis Scott Key as he wrote what would become the national anthem. Before you climb aboard your charter bus for a guided tour of Fort McHenry, watch the accompanying video to learn what to expect.

You can walk along the area that served as the mainline of defense against the British gunships, and see the original canons used during the war. The American defenders used both 36-lb. and 18-lb. cannonballs.
