Featured Image of the Week – 9/15/2014


“a Star Spangled Banner”

For this weeks Featured Image of the Week I went back to find a shot from my 2013 visit to Baltimore, Maryland. While I was in Baltimore I took in a baseball game, toured the famous Inner Harbor area and I also made a stop at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. It was this fort that gave birth to the American National Anthem 200 years ago (yesterday) during the War of 1812 and it was a really awesome place to see.
