The Best $ 10 You’ll Ever Spend

Porthole Cruise Magazine - - The Insider -

“By the dawn’s early light” on Septem­ber 14, 1814, Fran­cis Scott Key stood on the deck of a Bri­tish war­ship in Bal­ti­more Har­bor, looked through a spy­glass, and saw the U.S. flag still fly­ing high above Fort McHenry af­ter the night-long Bri­tish bom­bard­ment. The stir­ring sight in­spired him to pen the poem that would even­tu­ally be­come our Na­tional An­them. The flag still flies high over the fort — now a na­tional mon­u­ment — which you can tour for just $10 ad­mis­sion.
