FRANCIS SCOTT KEY WROTE THE NATIONAL ANTHEM ON A BOAT
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.
