Did you know that two out of three Americans don’t know the words nor the historical events that inspired our National Anthem?
Did you know that the “official standards” of the anthem was for “The Star Spangled Banner” to be sung together? It has now become the custom for our anthem to be performed by soloist at special events.
Do you know and understand the significance of our anthem’s history. And how our national anthem came to be?
We want to remind all Americans to treasure our national riches and to celebrate our unity and our values in song.
