Students form a living flag at Maryland's Fort McHenry

Posted:

BALTIMORE (CNN) -- More than 7,000 students wearing red, white and blue helped form the stars and stripes at Maryland's Fort McHenry on Tuesday.

In 1814, the sight of the flag waving over the fort after the Battle of Baltimore inspired Francis Scott Key to write what would become the national anthem. This year marks the 200th anniversary of the battle and writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner."
