I would like to say "Happy New Year" to all the folks on this board. Over the years, it has been a resource in many ways. Yes, we have had history lessons on one kind or another, but today, I found this and thought it would give us something to think about as we go into 2018.
The background of our National Anthem
While we knew about Francis Scott Key, we may not know the whole story as shown in this YouTube.
This video will give you pause to reflect on what has gone before, to make our country great; and this little piece of history is one reason why all our soldiers, veterans, and patriots choke up every time they hear the United States National Anthem. https://www.youtube.com/embed/YaxGNQE5ZLA
