USA: Fort McHenry with matching stamp

Fort McHenry, in Baltimore, Maryland, is a historical American coastal pentagonal bastion fort best known for its role in the War of 1812, when it successfully defended Baltimore Harbor from an attack by the British navy from the Chesapeake Bay September 13–14, 1814. It was first built in 1798 and was used continuously by the U.S. armed forces through World War I and by the Coast Guard in World War II. It was designated a national park in 1925, and in 1939 was redesignated a "National Monument and Historic Shrine".

Three nice stamps with two beautiful postmarks:
Soccerball (from set Have A Ball!), issued on 14.06.2017.
Superman (from set DC Comic Book Heroes), issued on 20.07.2006.
The War of 1812: Fort McHenry, issued on 13.09.2014.

Thank you Charlotte!
