Here is the inspiration for these jerseys according to Maryland Football’s Facebook page (which is linked in the quote below):
On September 13, 1814 a “band of pirates” courageously defended Fort McHenry in the historic Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812. Two-hundred years later to the day, our team will honor the anniversary of the historic event by wearing uniforms that pay homage to it.
This uniform comes out after the University of Maryland and Under Armour recently announced a 10-year extension of their deal for the Baltimore-based company to continue outfitting Terp athletes.
