The Star-Spangled Banner

The Star-Spangled Banner


Key Features


On September 11, 1814, the British Fleet arrived at the mouth of the Patapsco River. Thus began the Battle of Baltimore, which inspired Francis Scott Key to pen The Star-Spangled Banner. Featuring Aretha Franklin's soulful, heartfelt voice, our flag's broad strips and bright stars shine through in this moving rendition of our national anthem.


"Peter Spier's detailed watercolor-and-ink illustrations, and Aretha Franklin's musical rendition breathe life into the words of our anthem." - School Library Journal, Curriculum Corporation
