"The Star Spangled Banner"

6 posts in this topic

This is the British drinking song that Key used for the tempo of his poem, "The Defense of Fort McHenry," which we call "The Star Spangled Banner."

BTW The true title is "The Anacreontic Song" but most, of the few that do, know it as "To Anacreon In Heaven."

Ahh a the Star Spangled banner. Written during America's first failed war of Imperial Aggression. Good thing they lost, I didn't want to be a yank, ha!
