The English lobbed exploding rockets at Napoleon at Waterloo, and they also used

them against the Americans in the War of 1812. (When the British warship Erebus

bombarded Fort McHenry during that war, the nightlong barrage of rocket-propelled

bombs provided "the rockets red glare" mentioned by Francis Scott Key in The

Star Spangled Banner.)
