During the Battle of Baltimore in 1812, Francis Scott Key was inspired to write “Defence of Fort McHenry,” a poem that later served as the lyrics to America’s National Anthem in 1931, after seeing the Star-Spangled Flag sewn by Mary Young Pickersgill. With its deep roots in our country’s history, Baltimore is the greatest city to celebrate 4th of July! Here’s what’s going on around Charm City —
