Star-Spangled Banner National TrailBoth a squadron of the British navy and severe weather challenged the famed Chesapeake Flotilla off Cedar Point on June 1, 1814. The modest fleet of armed barges was assembled by Joshua Barney to harass British ships. With an inadequate professional navy in the War of 1812, Barney's flotilla was the best hope for disrupting British operations on the Bay.After advancing on the superior British squadron, the flotilla escaped into the Patuxent and became trapped by enemy ships.
