Star-Spangled Banner—Inspiring the Anthem

Taught by Professor Richard Kurin | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Begin your tour of national treasures from the Smithsonian with the artifact that inspired our national anthem: the flag that flew over Fort McHenry when Francis Scott Key penned “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Hear about the battle for the fort and the later history of the flag, including how it was almost “loved to death.”
