Star Spangled Banner

Today is the 200th anniversary of the USA national anthem, according to a segment we just heard on morning television here.

Apparently it was 200 years ago this morning that the casual poet who wrote the words that became incorporated into the anthem woke to find the star spangled banner still flying over a fort that had been subject of fierce attack through the night.

It's all here if you are interested.

Happy birthday anthem.
