Product Description

In 1814, a young American lawyer named Francis Scott Key watched through the night as British troops attacked Fort McHenry in Baltimore. As the smoke cleared and dawn broke, he lifted a small telescope to his eye and saw the American flag waving above the fort. America had endured. Filled with emotion, Key wrote the first lines of "The Star-Spangled Banner" - the song that would become our national anthem.

Elementary students can learn what each part of this song means, and better understand this national song. Colorfully illustrated with timeline, glossary and index; 32 pages.
