Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail

St. John's Episcopal Church survived the British attack on Havre de Grace May 3, 1813. The enemy spared the 1809 structure but damaged the interior. According to a newspaper account: "Finding nothing to steal (the raiders) 'magnanimously' attacked the windows(s) with brick bats and stones, and demolished them."

"One would suppose...they would have shown some respect to this building as...'The English Church'...But it seems all sense of shame was lost...Plunder and devastation was the order of the day..."
-Rev. James Jones Wilmer, 1813

Barbarians
First-person accounts of the devastation at Havre de Grace fueled newspaper reports of "wanton barbarity among civilized people." British Rear Admiral George Cockburn, portrayed as a villainous "violator of all laws, human (and) divine," struck terror as he made an example of Havre de Grace for other towns.
