At 3 a.m. on September 12, 1814, British began landing troops and supplies here from ships anchored in Old Road Bay. By 6:30 a.m., columns formed on Long Log Lane (now Old North Point Road) when bugles sounded at 7 a.m., 4700 British soldiers, sailors and marines set out for Baltimore. That afternoon, their Commander, Major General Robert Ross, was killed and they were met by Americans in the Battle of North Point. In 2 days of fighting, Baltimore withstood these land forces and the simultaneous naval attack on Fort McHenry.
