All my life I've been extremely proud of my bith place in South Baltimore....If you never been to Maryland
it's definitely something one should add to their bucket list.
After you tour the fort its not over...as if you take a water tour...you'll see the fort from another perspective.
Ft Carroll sits just south of the Key bridge, along with Ft. Smallwood,and Ft Armstead.
These too played a part in the defence of Baltimore.
The British sent toops to the south east side of the city...as our patriot fathers at Ft. McHenery weren't going to allow one British ship past the point heading up to the inner harbour.
Now with the British trying to out flank met our forces on the East side ....they met their match ...and a sniper took out their general...at the battle of Long point....the second in command chose to retreat....as he was now afraid to advance...in fear of our forces.
Happy 4th everyone..., and many thanks to all those who have defended U.S. past and present...and granted us our freedom.
The medal above of the U.S.S. John W. Brown was constructed across the river from the fort.
She's one of the last Liberty ships
