Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail

Hard PressedMilitiamen were often assigned elsewhere, leaving hometown defense to those exempted from service due to age or infirmity. Outnumbered, and with limited artillery and ammunition, even the bravest defenders rarely rebuffed an attack.

"I...had a Deputation from Charlesto(w)n in the North East River to assure me that that Place is—-at your Mercy, and that neither Guns nor Militia Men shall be suffered there."British Rear Admiral George Cockburn to Admiral John B. Warren, May 6, 1813
