Fort [=McHenry=] also was famous (or infamous) for turning its cannons on the citizens of Baltimore during the Civil War, done to keep the city, a major trade port which served as an outpost of the slave trade, from defecting to the Confederation and thus surround Washington with hostiles. In fact, had it not been for this, the war could have turned out very differently. Incidentally, this put Baltimore and Maryland as a whole into an odd little identity crisis over whether it was a northern or southern state. This still persists to this day, and it's not uncommon to see memorials to the brave Maryland Troops on both sides of Civil War battlefields. In Gettysburg, there is even a case of a Union Maryland monument directly across the battle line from a Confederate Monument.

Hunt Valley is also the home to the Sinclair Broadcast Group, owner of many TV stations in large markets, and the Wrestling/RingOfHonor wrestling promotion; Sinclair's notorious in the industry for forcing right-wing slanted news stories on their stations and for owning more than two stations in a market via shell companies. Also in the realm of TV are the stations based on Television Hill in the northwest side of town: WJZ-13, owned by CBS, and previously a Westinghouse station, before CBS bought them in the 90s (they were ABC before that); WBAL-11, flagship of Hearst Television and an NBC affiliate (they switched to CBS in 1981, but reclaimed NBC in 1995); and the flagships of Sinclair, WBFF Fox 45, and WNUV CW 54. TV Hill's famous candelabra tower can been seen from across the city.

WMAR-2, the ABC station (owned by Scripps) is the only station that isn't based on TV Hill. In May 2014, their studios were the subject of a major news story, when [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WMAR-TV#ABC_affiliation a man tried to force his way into the studios by ramming a stolen truck into the lobby]].

In baseball, Baltimore is home to the Orioles, who have a long-standing rivalry with the New York Yankees (who were actually the ''original'' Orioles for two years before moving to Bronx in 1903), the New York Mets (Baltimore tends to hold deep grudges in sports; the dislike of the Mets is due to a "bad call" in the 1969 World Series), and the Washington Nationals, though both the Mets and Nats are rarely played against.
