Hometown Hall Celebrates National Anthem Day
Hometown Hall #hometownhall (HTH) – HometownHall.Com is celebrating National Anthem Day on March 3.
National Anthem Day commemorates the day the United States adopted “The Star Spangled Banner” as its National Anthem. Written by Francis Scott Key, the “Star Spangled Banner” became the National Anthem in 1931.
Oh Say Can You See Fort McHenry
The story behind “The Star Spangled Banner” is as moving as the anthem itself. While an attorney, Key was serving in the Georgetown Light Field Artillery during the War of 1812. In 1814, his negotiation skills as a lawyer were called upon to release Dr. William Beane, a prisoner on the British naval ship, Tonnant. Early in September, Key traveled to Baltimore in the company of Colonel John Skinner to begin negotiations.
While Key and Skinner secured Beane’s release, the British navy had begun attacking Baltimore. The trio waited at sea to return to Georgetown.
Troy Warren, Editor in Chief of Hometown Hall commented, “This celebration has special meaning based on the pandemic of the last year.”
