Star-Spangled Story: Battle For America
Star-Spangled Story: Battle For America 1 x 60'
The Star-Spangled Banner is treasured for its powerful melody and stirring lyrics. And yet, only about 40% of U.S. citizens know all the words. And even fewer know their meaning.

Join us as we travel back to 1814, when Washington DC was under British attack during the Second War of Independence, and the very bricks and mortar of American democracy were reduced to smoking rubble. We examine the battle that inspired witness Francis Scott Key to immortalize its final moments, and then reveal how his poem transformed into an anthem.
