The Armistead Room is named after George Armistead. He was an American military officer who served as the commander of Fort McHenry during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812. He is well known for capturing British flags and bringing them to President James Madison. His defense of Baltimore against a British attack in 1814 inspired Francis Scott Key to write The Star-Spangled Banner.
