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.
Every year in September North Point State Battlefield celebrates the national story of bravery displayed more than 200 years ago at the Battle of North Point. This turning point in the War of 1812 proved the tenacity of the citizens of Baltimore and their fight for American independence.
