Description

The story of the writing of lyrics to the United States of America’s national anthem comes alive once more in this book, complete with illustrations and photos. Francis Scott Key witnessed the barrage on Fort McHenry as a prisoner of the British during the War of 1812. The American flag waved over the fort during the battle and its presence after the battle meant that his new country had upheld its independence.
