National Anthem Day

The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States of America. It was written by Francis Scott Key. National Anthem Day celebrates  this song, and the rich history behind its creation. The song officially became our national anthem on March 3, 1931.

Celebrate today by proudly flying the flag. Also listen to and sing the Star-Spangled Banner.

      Key wrote the song as he was detained as a prisoner of war during the war of 1812. As the bombardment of a small fort on the new America was taking place he watched to see if the flag of America was still flying over  Fort McHenry. The song The Star Spangled Banner was written on September 14 but was celebrated March 3rd the day that Congress made it the national Anthem;
