Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
—War of 1812 —
The town site suffered from effects of the war and silting of the creek, so St. Leonard was reestablished in its present location.
St. Leonard’s Town was secure when the Chesapeake Flotilla defended its base. U.S. Infantry and marines stationed on Fort Hill protected the flotilla’s left flank. A one-gun battery protected the opposite shore. A floating boom between these two points blocked access to the town.
