Summary:Aerial view of Harbor showing Fort McHenry, Baltimore, Maryland, circa 1930-1941. Caption reads: "FORT McHENRY stands in tribute to those men who fought bravely defending its ramparts during the bombardment of the British Fleet in 1814, and to Francis Scott Key, who at that time was inspired to write the Star Spangled Banner. In 1925 the Government declared Fort McHenry a national park, after having restored it as nearly as possible to its appearance in 1814.
