Product Description

Imagine that instead of witnessing the bombardment on Fort McHenry during the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key witnessed the surrender at Fort Sumter to start the Civil War in 1861. How would his poem have been different?

In this activity, students research using a variety of resources to learn about the events surrounding Fort McHenry. They then use what they have learned to re-write the "Star-Spangled Banner" as a Union supporter witnessing the attack on the Fort Sumter.
