Summary, etc.:
"O say can you see" begins one of the most recognizable songs in the United States. Originally a poem by Francis Scott Key, the national anthem tells the story of the American flag rising high above a fort after a night of intense battle during the War of 1812. But there is so much more to the story that what is sung at ball games. What was this battle about? Who sewed those broad stripes and bright stars? And who was Francis Scott Key, anyway? Star-Spangled answers these questions and more as it tells the bigger story from the perspective of different real players--both American and British--on this pivotal battle from American history.
