The National Anthem: Lyrics First Published 200 Years Ago

FSK

Speaking of Baltimore … Saturday was the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s lyrics being published in the Baltimore Patriot to the song that would become the National Anthem.

What’s yours? >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NPbPSpWum8
