This photo of the Star Spangled Banner taken in 1914
Happy July 4th weekend to ALL.
Wanted to share an interesting historical article from the Smithsonian Magazine on Francis Scott Key’s writing of the Star Spangled Banner and the making of the flag that was “still there.”
“The Story Behind the Star Spangled Banner,” written for the Smithsonian.com by Cate Lineberry provides not only the story of how Francis Scott Key wrote the poem, but also the history of the flag. Excellent article. Easy reading. No bun or BBQ sauce needed. Perfect as is. See link above or click on PDF below.
