In September 1814, after a 25-hour long battle, U.S. soldiers at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry raised in victory a 42-foot American flag. After the smoke cleared, Francis Scott Key, aboard a ship, saw the American Flag flying over the fort! This inspired him to write the The Star-Spangled Banner. Today, we celebrate 200yrs of the battle of Fort McHenry and the War of 1812, but also we celebrate our National Anthem. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ#starspangledbanner #200yrs #usa
