Product Description

Written during the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key wrote a poem that would become what we now sing as "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Step back into the past and witness the Battle of Baltimore as Scott Key did, and witness the bravery of the American troops, and see the flag still waving high over Fort McHenry. Illustrated by Caldecott-winner Peter Spier, his famous visual illustration style fantastically conveys the movements of the war. The complete lyrics, musical notation, historical images, and a reproduction of Francis Scott Key's original manuscript are included.
