Where: For McHenry
This star-shaped brick fort is famous for its role in the War of 1812. The national monument, which staved off a British invasion, later inspired Francis Scott Key to pen a poem, “Defence of Fort McHenry” — the words of which later served as the lyrics to his “Star-Spangled Banner.”
