North Point State Park
"A little piece of heaven on the Chesapeake Bay".
North Point State Battlefield preserves nine acres of open land which represent the last undeveloped parcel from the site of the Battle of North Point, a turning point in the Defense of Baltimore during the War of 1812. On September 12, 1814, 3,000 citizen soldiers of the Maryland militia deployed across this field and fought invading British regulars from behind a fence line along its eastern edge. American Brigadier General Stricker, the hero of North Point, commanded his forces from within the borders of the State Battlefield.
