Power point presentation #2 is entitled the National Anthem – Symbol of American Freedom and contains 18 slides.

The National Anthem or “The Star-Spangled Banner” is one of six symbols that is recognized by the Library of Congress as an official symbol of America. Long before the song officially became the country’s anthem in 1931, it had been one of America’s most popular patriotic tunes for more than a century.

The anthem’s history began the morning of September 14, 1814, not as a song but as a lyric, penned by an attorney and amateur poet named Francis Scott Key. Key happened to be on a ship in the harbor observing a group of U.S. soldiers who were under heavy bombardment from British naval forces during the War of 1812.

He was so impressed with the soldiers as he watched them raise a large American flag over Fort McHenry in Baltimore, MD, that he was inspired to write the lyrics to the first verse on the back side of a letter of what was originally called “Defence of Fort M’Henry.”

Once he returned to Baltimore, he had completed four verses (only one of which is commonly known today). After a local printer issued the song, “Defence of Fort M’Henry,” two Baltimore newspapers printed it, and it spread quickly to various cities along the East Coast.

Ironically, the melody Key assigned to accompany the lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was a popular English drinking song called “To Anacreon in Heaven.” At first, “The Star-Spangled Banner” trailed “Yankee Doodle” and “Hail Columbia” in popularity among patriotic 19th-century tunes.

During and immediately after the American Civil War, Key’s song gained a deeper meaning, as the American flag became an increasingly powerful symbol of national unity. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed an executive order designating it “the national anthem of the United States.” In 1931, more than 100 years after it was composed, Congress passed a measure declaring “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the official national anthem.
