Francis Scott Key buoy drop

The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter James Rankin, home-ported at the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore, places the historic Francis Scott Key buoy in the Patapsco River, June 5, 2014. This year is the 200th anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner," and the buoy marks the location where the ship carrying Key was anchored during the bombardment of Fort McHenry in 1814.
