The largest catches by species are the blue crab, oysters and striped bass. The Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail is a 560-mile mile land and water route that tells the story of the War of 1812 in the Chesapeake Bay region. It connects historic sites in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia and commemorates the events leading up to the Battle for Baltimore, the aftermath of which inspired Francis Scott Key to write the National Anthem of the United States.
