Frederick's favorite son is celebrated throughout the US before every kickoff, face-off and first pitch. The author of the "Star Spangled Banner," Francis Scott Key was born in Frederick County and launched his law career here in 1801. He would write the National Anthem in 1814, while being held aboard a British ship during the bombing of Fort McHenry. To sense Frederick's pride in this hometown hero just attend a Frederick Keys baseball game at Harry Grove Stadium or note the civic buildings and commercial businesses that bear his name.
