The Star-Spangled Banner
The national anthem illustrated with engaging watercolors that depict the British attack of Fort McHenry in Baltimore in the War of 1812. It was during this battle that the Star-Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key. Also includes the story of the flag that flew over Fort McHenry during that battle and how it came to be in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, DC.
