Like many reviewers I really liked the movie as well. It was very touching when it played the Star Spangled Banner at the end and the screen lifted the reveal the flag. One tip, though, if you go- they are playing our national anthem, so stand up, or you look like schmucks. We went there with relatives who are in the military and they were down right offended at people who didn't stand. The fort was really neat. It was fun to climb down into the weapons storage, or the bunkers, go in the jail cells. The fact that they let you get so hands on is really a boon to people with kids. Our kids loved the huge cannons! They have signs to stay off the earthworks but it is really really hard to keep kids down. I can see why a lot of people go running around here. It's lovely! Beautiful views of the Bay! And we were pleased that they gave tribute to Armistead who actually defended the fort instead of focusing solely on Key who was watching from a distance, you know? And fun that they're flying the 15 star flag that they flew at the time! We spent a wonderful afternoon here! We're very glad we went.
