  1. The Star Spangled Banner The Story of Our National Anthem

  2. 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 lyrics for a song about the flag that later became our national anthem.

  3. America Under Threat The Americans believed the British were encouraging Native Americans to attack settlements of U.S.citizens near the western frontier of our young nation. Meanwhile, military ships from England (under King George III) and France (under Napoleon Bonaparte) were capturing American merchant ships; captured American sailors were being forced to serve in the British Royal Navy.

  4. America Declares War June 18, 1812 After four years of British attacks, United States President James Madison signed a declaration of war against King George III, king of Great Britain and Ireland. President James Madison King George III

  5. Baltimore, Maryland Fort McHenry was built to defend the city of Baltimore, which was an important international seaport. When war was declared, the people of Baltimore knew they would need Fort McHenry to help protect them.

  6. Fort McHenry Fort McHenry was built in the shape of a five-pointed star. Ramparts, or low dirt walls, surrounded the fort and helped to keep it strong.

  7. Fort McHenry and the Flag In the summer of 1813Major George Armistead, commander of Fort McHenry, decided the fort needed a flag that the British could see from a great distance.

  8. Mary Pickersgill Makes Giant Flag for Fort McHenry The flag, which had 15 stars and 15 stripes, was so big it had to be assembled on the floor of a neighboring brewery. When it was finished, the flag was 30 feet wide and 42 feet long and weighed over 200 pounds!

  9. Washington D.C. Is Burning In the summer of 1814, President Madison was forced to flee Washington D.C. when British troops captured the city, burning many buildings, including the White House, the U.S. Capitol, and the Library of Congress.

  10. Tornado Saves Washington, D.C. Incredibly, a hurricane spawned a tornado, which put out fires set by the British and wiped out many British soldiers.

  11. The Battle of Fort McHenry Begins I was working as a lawyer when President Madison asked me to help obtain the release of my friend, a doctor being held prisoner aboard a British ship. The British released Dr. Beanes, but attacked Fort McHenry at 6:30 a.m. on September 13, 1814, as we watched helplessly from the ship.

  12. A Fierce Battle The British bombed Fort McHenry for hours. Around noon, thunderstorms added to the noise of the battle. As early evening, or twilight, approached, the battle continued. But the rockets’ red glare and the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

  13. The Battle Ends At dawn’s early light I saw that our flag’s broad stripes and bright stars still wove throughthe perilous fight. After nearly 25 hours, the British stopped the bombardment. A few months later, they surrendered the war. Seeing the battle made me think: “. . .does not such a country and such defenders deserve a song?”

  14. My Song Is Done While still aboard the boat, I began to write about what I had seen. Once I was back on land, I quickly drafted my song in 4 verses. It was published on September 17, 1814, just a few days after the bombardment of Fort McHenry!

  15. My Song Becomes a Hit Soon after, Thomas Carr’s Music Store in Baltimore published my song in sheet-music format. It instantly became a big hit!

  16. My Song Becomes the National Anthem • In 1889 the Secretary of the Navy orders that the first verse of The Star Spangled Bannerbe played at morning flag-raising ceremonies. • By 1917 the song is regarded as the official national anthem by the U.S. Armed Forces. • In 1931 Congress passes a law making The Star Spangled Bannerthe official national anthem of the United States.

  17. My Song Is Published Again and Again Slightly different versions of my song were published over the years and each featured a different design. What design would you create for The Star Spangled Banner? While you think about it, let’s make sure you know the words to the first verse!
