The Star-Spangled Banner: “The Star-Spangled Banner” is the national anthem of the United States of America. The lyrics come from “Defence of Fort McHenry”,a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet,Francis Scott Key,after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. The poem was set to the tune of a popular British song written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society,a men’s social club in London. “The Anacreontic Song”,with various lyrics,was already popular in the United States. Set to Key’s poem and renamed “The Star-Spangled Banner”,it would soon become a well-known American patriotic song. With a range of one and a half octaves,it is known for being difficult to sing. Although the poem has four stanzas,only the first is commonly sung today. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was recognized for official use by the Navy in 1889,and by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916,and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3,1931,which was signed by President Herbert Hoover. Before 1931,other songs served as the hymns of American officialdom. “Hail,Columbia” served this purpose at official functions for most of the 19th century. “My Country,’Tis of Thee”,whose melody is identical to the British national anthem,also served as a de facto anthem before the adoption of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Following the War of 1812 and subsequent American wars,other songs would emerge to compete for popularity at public events,among them “The Star-Spangled Banner”.
