Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
— War of 1812 —Some of the fiercest fighting of the war occurred here, where St. Leonard Creek meets the Patuxent River. During the summer of 1814, the British navy tried to flush out and destroy Commodore Joshua Barney's Chesapeake Flotilla—a rag-tag assembly of armed boats barges. The flotilla prevailed in a series of skirmishes June 8-10, known as the First Battle of St. Leonard Creek.
