2013-D Fort McHenry Quarter

On this Thanksgiving we give thanks for food, family, and everything American. In that spirit I found a very patriotic America the Beautiful quarter. The Fort McHenry quarter shows the Maryland fort that the Star Spangled Banner was written.

Officially known as the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine it was the place that Francis Scott Key saw the British bombard the fort for days. He was so inspired to the American flag still waving high above the fort that he wrote The Star-Spangled Banner.

The coin features the annual ceremony of "Defenders Day" which partially recreates the events of the original attack of 1814. The national park is small at a little over 40 acres but it may be one of the most important. Released in August if this year it is the fourth f five quarters in the 2013 series.
