Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
— War of 1812 —Southern Maryland was a dangerous place to live in the hot summer of 1814. British raiding parties traveled the Patuxent River and swept through the countryside terrorizing civilians and taking provisions for British troops gathering in the area. They also hoped to flush out Joshua Barney, whose Chesapeake Flotilla was just out of reach up the Patuxent.
