Probably scared, cold, distressed, but also patriotic (Otherwise how would he be able to write the national anthem?)

It was actually written in 1814 after the battle of Fort McHenry. The fort was bombarded by the British Navy in 1812 and Francis Scott Key, who wrote the poem, was at the battle. It became the National Anthem on March 3 1931 by Congressional vote and then signed into law by President Hoover.

He wrote his poem following the failed British attack on Baltimore. It wasn't set to music until later, and it was more than a century before it became the official national anthem.

He set out to write a poem, based on his experience watching the British attack on Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. It wasn't until some time later that his words were set to music and the song was adapted as the anthem.

On September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key looked through clearing smoke to see a large flag still flying after a 25 hour British bombardment of Baltimore's Fort HcHenry. Because of this sight, he became inspired to write a poem about what he saw. Later on it was set to music and eventually the Star Spangled Banner became our national anthem. Prior to this. God Bless America was sung as our national anthem.

The National Anthem was written by Francis Scott Key in 1812. He was inspired to write the song after witnessing an attack on Fort McHenry by the British Navy. The fort received a severe pummeling, but survived with the American flag still flying overhead. Key's Star-Spangled Banner was adopted by the U.S. Navy in 1889, and officially declared the national anthem in 1931.

He was a American lawyer who was inspired to write The Star Spangled Banner (our national anthem) after watching the British Navy unsuccessfully siege Fort McHenry, in the harbor of Baltimore, Maryland, during the War of 1812.

It was the "star-spangled banner," which was the flag that represented the United States of America. It was the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the lyrics to the song that is now America's national anthem.
