The Star Spangled Banner
“The Star Spangled Banner” – American Flag Photos by Steven Michael Photography and Art.
On the early morning of September 14, 1814 aboard a ship several miles out in the Baltimore Harbor, Francis Scott Key awoke to see the American Flag still flying and the British Ships withdrawing in defeat. For over 25 hours, the British Warships had pounded Fort McHenry with rockets and bombs but were unable to defeat the American resilience. With smoke still billowing in the air, Francis Scott Key put to paper what we know as the Star Spangled Banner.
Oh say can you see, by the dawns early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave
