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.

A google for full lyrics/verses should yield them.

Here a quick one

Ahh youtube the most trusted source in history lessons.

Here is the description of the video from the person who created and uploaded he video. The red highlighted lines are the best.

"A story of how our national anthem came to be. I was asked by someone to put a video together for this audio and upload it, so here it is. I was never expecting it to get so many views. Yes I know some of the info is sketchy and wording isn't exactly right. Just please stop sending complaints to me. I'm doing a favor for someone here. You can look up the accurate story if want the precise info. Hope you guys enjoy the message of the story though. God Bless America! P.S: Really sorry about the typos in the anthem *I don't own the audio or pics and the flag video that I used towards the end belongs to FarWestTexas."

And a little lesson on Francis Scott Key from Smithsonian:
