Scene of naval battles during War of 1812

In June, 1814, Maryland's Commodore Joshua Barney commanded American flotilla of barges, gunboats and a sloop in attacks on superior British forces in Patuxent River and its tributary, St. Leonard Creek. After flotilla moved up Patuxent and was blockaded, British destroyed town of St. Leonard, then located here at head of creek, before proceeding to Washington, which they burned August 24.
