Fort McHenry is a star-shaped fortification that was built in 1794-1803 for the defense of the city of Baltimore, Maryland. Its only battle occurred during the War of 1812, when British ships bombarded it September 13-14, 1814 in order to attack Baltimore. The fort held, and it became the birthplace of the �Star-Spangled Banner�, when Francis Scott Key wrote the words to what would become the US National Anthem after witnessing the British bombardment.
