Star Spangled Banner photograph and text artwork created by Ella Kaye. Text is the USA national anthem. The author of the original poem that became the lyrics to our national anthem was written by Francis Scott Key in 1814. He was inspired by the American flag that was raised after the War of 1812. The flag, then with 15 stars, was raised over Fort McHenry on September 14, 1814. The flag was a signal of the American victory over the British in the Battle of Baltimore. As witness of this moving event, Francis Scott Key wrote the poem that became the lyrics of the anthem. The actual "Star-Spangled Banner" flag can be viewed at the Smithsonian Institute.
Thank you for viewing my photography and artwork. God bless you.
God bless the USA.
