Fort McHenry!

Did you know Fort McHenry is in Baltimore? It's not that far from where we are! Any way, the reason my husband wanted to talk to me was to ask if I wanted to go to the Fort and look around!!!! All but two of our team went along with the two student interns helping us.

We didn't pay to actually go into the Fort because we really didn't have time to spend all the time we would have liked. But the visitor's center was free. It had a great model of the Fort and a 15 minute movie on the Defense of Fort McHenry. For anyone wondering what the big deal is, the Defense of Fort McHenry is what inspired a lawyer by the name of Francis Scott Key to write a little poem which begins:
"Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light...."
I feel so historic and American!
