The Battle of Fort McHenry was fought September 13 & 14, 1814, during the War of 1812. Following their successful campaign against Washington DC, British forces advanced up the Chesapeake Bay to attack Baltimore, Maryland. The battle is best remembered for inspiring Francis Scott Key to write The Star-Spangled Banner. Initially published after the battle as the Defense of Fort McHenry, it eventually became known as The Star-Spangled Banner and was made the National Anthem of the United States.
