This is when the the bombardment of Fort McHenry took place, but little damage was done to either Fort McHenry or the British fleet. It is during this time that Francis Scott Key, while on board the HMS Tonnant wrote the Star-Spangled Banner ( The National Anthem of the United States) to the melody of an old British drinking song.
