The National Anthem

The words that we need to remember

Every major sports event you hear it, every military event you hear it but what do you know of it.

It is known that Francis Scott Keys wrote the words but did you the melody was originally an English Social Club song?

The history of the Anthem was that during a conflict Mr. Keys was so inspired by what he saw that he wrote a poem to show the respect of what he saw. Later, it was added to the tune and it wasn’t until the early 20th century before it became the national anthem.
