It's a MUSICAL MONDAY!!!!

Sept. 13 is the anniversary of the writing of our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner. 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.
