Oh, Say, Can You See -The Ghost of Francis Scott Key and the national anthem, by Lonnie Dai Zovi

Mr. Kaley invites his family to accompany him on a business trip to his hometown of Baltimore. He proudly points out the sights, including the house where his grandmother had lived. He informs them that Francis Scott Key, the author of the Star Spangled Banner, had lived there before.
