"Then, in that hour of deliverance, my heart spoke. Does not such a country, and such defenders of their country, deserve a song?"

Francis Scott Key

Key was born on August 1, 1779 and died on January 11, 1843.He was a lawyer.He married and had 11 children.He wrote the poem during the War of 1812 against Britian.During the war the British captured a man named Dr. William Beanes. Key was sent to ask the British to release him. The British agreed, but wouldn't release them until after they had finished attacking Fort McHenry. Key, Beanes, and another of their friends were stuck on a British ship during the battle. They fearfully watched the battle from a British boat. They waited continually watching to make sure that the flag was still flying above the fort. The next morning the bombs had stopped, and the three looked to see if the American flag was still there or if it was taken down meaning that the Americans lost. They saw the a huge American flag! Key began a poem then that would later become a song loved by Americans everywhere: The Star Spangled Banner, the national anthem
