While I was on my way to a training, I stopped at Fort McHenry at the suggestion of a friend. I had never been there before. It was a really neat fort! I learned that it was the birthplace of the national anthem of the United States, and got to see the same sites the fellow who penned it did. It was interesting to learn about the battle that was fought there, and see the buildings and their uses. Pretty neat to be given significant context to where the words for the anthem come from. I definitely recommend popping in for a visit if you're in the area. Even on a cold winters day, it was still really cool!
