The Star Spangled Banner The Story of Our National Anthem
Francis Scott Key & The Star Spangled Banner Hello, I’m Francis Scott Key. I have a story to tell you about a great American flag. The flag flew strong while British and American soldiers fought a battle during the War of 1812. After, I wrote a song about the flag that later became our national anthem.
American Ships Captured For 4 years, ships from England France were capturing American ships and forcing captured American sailors to serve in the British Royal Navy.
America Declares War June 18, 1812 In 1812, United States President James Madison declared war against King George III, king of Great Britain and Ireland. President James Madison King George III
Baltimore, Maryland is the site of Fort Mc. Henry. This fort was used to protect America during the War of 1812.
Fort Mc. Henry and Its Flag In 1813, Major George Armistead decided Fort Mc. Henry needed a very big flag so that the British could see it from far away.
Mary Pickersgill Makes Giant Flag for Fort Mc. Henry The flag was 30 feet wide and 42 feet long and weighed over 200 pounds!
Washington D. C. Is Burning In 1814, President Madison had to leave Washington D. C. when British troops burned many buildings, including the White House, the U. S. Capitol, and the Library of Congress.
Tornado Saves Washington, D. C. Luckily, a tornado put out the fires set by the British and wiped out many British soldiers.
The Battle of Fort Mc. Henry I was working as a lawyer when President Madison asked me to help free a doctor who was being held prisoner on a British ship. The British let the doctor go but attacked Fort Mc. Henry at 6: 30 a. m. on September 13, 1814.
The Battle and the Song The British attacked Fort Mc. Henry for one whole day, but didn’t capture it so they gave up the fight. A few months later, the war ended. Seeing the battle made me think of a song about the big flag at Fort Mc. Henry.
I Write the Song Quickly After I returned home, I quickly finished my song, which had 4 verses. It was printed just a few days after the battle at Fort Mc. Henry!
I Have a Hit Song! People really liked my song; it became a big hit!
My Song, the United States National Anthem More than 100 years later, The Star Spangled Banner became the official song of the United States.
Do You Know the Words to My Song? My song has 4 verses, but only the first verse is sung today. Let’s learn the words!
