Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail

John O'Neill led a futile defense when British raiders attacked Havre de Grace May 3, 1812. As other defenders fled, O'Neill briefly manned a cannon alone.

His courage earned O'Neill a presidential appointment as first keeper of the Concord Point Lighthouse. He lived here from 1827 until his death in 1838.

"... An English officer on horseback followed by the marines, rode up and took me with two muskets in my hand." — John O'Neill, Baltimore Niles' Weekly Register May 15, 1813.
