Who Dies for Country, doth not yield
To death's uncompromising sway
He soars Immortal from the field
And dwells untouched by time's decay
? ? ? ? ? ? ? Wm. M. Marine

This one-acre of the North Point Battlefield was set aside in 1839 to commemorate those who risked and gave their lives to defend their homes and country from an invading British Army.

On September 12, 1814, the 5th, 27th, 39th, 51st Regiments of Maryland Militia, engaged in battle with the British on this very ground, at the same time their neighbors and compatriots fought an invading British naval force a few miles away at Fort McHenry.

The success of the American citizen soldiers in these two engagements saved the Port of Baltimore from capture, and forced the British from the Chesapeake Region for the rest of the War in 1812.
