The original War of 1812 Star-Spangled Banner, the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the song that would become our national anthem, is among the most treasured artifacts in the collections of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington

This day in history - Sept. 13, 1814 - Francis Scott Key pens the poem originally titled "The Defense of Fort McHenry," which is later set to music and in 1931 becomes America's national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." The poem was written after Key witnessed the Maryland fort being bombarded by the British during the War of 1812. #thisdayinhistory #starspangledbanner (Whitney Houston singing Star Spangled Banner)
This crap of, "it's his right", that's some bull. I guess since we have a right to say whatever in the hell you want to, then don't get your briefs in a bunch when they exercise their own rights. MY POINT IS, JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN, DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD. Show some damn respect, or kick rocks!
