Star-Spangled Banner National Historic TrailAfter burning much of Havre de Grace May 3, 1813, British raiders crossed the Susquehanna to Cecil County. At Principio Iron Works they captured a five-gun battery and destroyed the foundry complex and the bridge across Principio Creek. More than 40 finished cannon were also lost to the American war effort that day.
