It's our history! The Flag and our Song! Who knows that story? We all should. Our kids visit D.C. Yet they don't visit here. Don't come to Baltimore and miss this important stop! Be sure to watch the video!!

Seriously. Watch the movie. It's about 10 minutes long but the memory will last forever. It almost brought me to tears. Beautiful. The fort itself is beautiful and well worth the visit and 10 bucks. An important piece of American history and very educational.

I am a Senior who walks using a cane and cannot walk great distances, even though there are benches for resting. Are there any "vehicles," that would provide a tour? Some sites have "golf carts," employee driven and charge, which I would be very happy to pay for? Thank you.

No, they don't have any scooters, or motorized vehicles. I to have problems getting around. I have taken my power chair there. It gets into most of the places, but it can't get into some parts of the fort.
