Kevin Plank should be mindful of Port Covington's history

From a Baltimore History standpoint, it is strongly to be desired that those involved in the development of Port Covington ("Kevin Plank-backed Port Covington deals fuel new speculation for possible campus," Jan. 23) remember the day in September 1814 when Fort Covington along with the nearby Babcock Battery saved Ft. McHenry from a British night attack from the back side of Ft. McHenry. The marvelous history of the defense of Baltimore well might have been different if those two fortifications had not existed. Many people do not know about this. James R. Morrison, Gibson Island
