Star-Spangled Banner + Trailer about Legal Voting & Honoring Those Who Serve
ABOUT: Classic orchestration, soaring vocals, and heart-stirring images remind us of the value of Liberty & of those who have defended it, as well as give us a glimpse into history (Battle of 1812), which bring to life the Lyrics of our National Anthem. The brief trailer following the song also emphasizes the importance of our participation in the process of holding to Liberty through legal voting & ongoing education about our Constitution & Bill of Rights.
HISTORY: "The Star-Spangled Banner," was composed after Francis Scott Key saw that an American flag still stood over Fort McHenry and after a night of fierce fighting during the Battle of Baltimore. The song became the national anthem in 1931. The flag, at 42 feet by 30 feet, was the largest in the nation at the time, and today it is on display in the National Museum of American History. "The Star-Spangled Banner" was composed during the War of 1812. However, it was originally a poem called "The Defense of Fort McHenry." After it was written, it was set to a popular melody written by English composer John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a men's social club in London.
