Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
— War of 1812 —Kent Island served as an ideal base of operations for the British in August 1813, as it was already an important link between Maryland's eastern and western shores. The British took over the Kent Island-Annapolis ferry, including a cargo of cattle, and used the ferry landing as one of several encampments. As many as 3,000 British troops conducted raids along the middle Bay from Kent Island.
