USCG Cutter Set to Mark Historical Site

Friday, June 02, 2006
The Coast Guard Cutter James Rankin is scheduled to set the historic "Francis Scott Key" buoy off of Fort McHenry, Md., near the Key Bridge Monday, June 5, 2006. The buoy marks the spot where the ship carrying Francis Scott Key, the author of the Star Spangled Banner, was anchored during the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. Each year the buoy is set in the spring marking the historic location of the event and then removed in the fall. Park Rangers from Ft. McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and members of the Dundalk-Patapsco Neck Historical Society and others will join the James Rankin wearing period uniforms and clothing, and provide a narrative of the events that occurred on that historic day.
