Star-Spangled Banner NHT: 2018 Highlights

  • Friends of Fort McHenry hosted special kayak excursions and walking wetland tours, along with talks about the Star-Spangled Banner NHT at a special “Fort McHenry celebrates the National Trails System” event.
  • In partnership with the Living Classrooms Foundation, fourth and fifth grade students from Francis Scott Key Elementary took a maritime voyage to learn about the Star-Spangled Banner NHT. This hands-on program focused on the War of 1812 to help students understand their local history.
