National Anthem Day 2014

National Anthem Day is celebrated on 3rd march. By this striking event, we publicized our admiration at our nation. National Anthem Day chants about the splendor of the country and takes pleasure in it. The Star-Spangled Banner is a national song of praise of the United States of America. And it was written through Francis Scott Key. And the National Anthem Day rejoices the song, and affluent history following its creation. Officially the song became our nationwide song of praise on 3rd March, 1931.

We celebrate this National Anthem Day through flying the flag. We sing and also listen the Star-Spangled Banner.

A rich history..........

Several people suppose that the Star Spangled Banner was written for the period of the Revolutionary War. But it was written for the duration of the war of 1812 (1812-1814).

And in August 1814, the British military seized Dr. William Beanes as a convict of combat. William Beanes was a companion of Francis Scott Key. And on 13th September, 1814, a U.S. representative and Francis Scott Key planked the British vessel at where William was being in custody. He discussed his companion’s release. However, Francis Scott Key was seized that day in company with the speaker. They were detained until after assault on the Fort McHenry, which secured the port and the city of Baltimore.

Francis Scott Key watched the attack of the castle from the ship. And the next morning, Francis Scott Key was overjoyed to observe that the American flag was flying over Fort McHenry. And the historic event motivated Francis Scott Key to note down "The Star-Spangled Banner" the subsequent day (September 14, 1814).

Correcting the confusion.........

Some people inaccurately assumed that the National Anthem Day is celebrated on 14th September, that day the song was written. But this is untrue. The carnival of the day, the congress completed the Star-Spangled Banner for our nationwide anthem.
