The fourth coin is the 2013 5 oz Silver ATB Fort McHenry National Park, Maryland Designs for the five 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters were published in line-art by the United States Mint on December 10, 2012. Actual images of the coins have since been released. As seen in the above image, the reverse or tails side of the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine Quarter depicts a scene during "Defenders Day" celebration, considered the centerpiece annual event held at Fort McHenry. The fireworks symbolize the "rocket’s red glare," linking the fort to its historic past, the Mint describes. The quarter-dollar was both designed and sculpted by Joseph Menna. Inscriptions surrounding the scene are FORT McHENRY, MARYLAND, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. Fort McHenry, located in Maryland, is best known for the role it played in the creation of perhaps the country’s most famous song, the national anthem "The Star-Spangled Banner." Written as a poem by Francis Scott Key, the song recalls the 25-hour bombardment of the fort by British war ships during the War of 1812. US forces within the fort were able to fend of the British, despite having inferior weapons, and prevented the Baltimore Harbor from being invaded. The fort was originally designed in 1798 and was named after surgeon-soldier James McHenry, a Scot-Irish immigrant who served as the Secretary of War under the first President of the United States George Washington. In the years since the War of 1812, the area has seen many different uses including a prison during the American Civil War, a hospital during World War I and a Coast Guard Base during World War II. Virtually no signs of these facilities remain today, with the fort still closely resembling the structure as it was during the War of 1812. Today, an estimated three quarters of a million people visit the fort annually.
