Francis Scott Key wrote "The Star-Spangled Banner" and it became our National Anthem. That is where the story ends, but where did it begin? On June 27, 1813, a Virginia-born army officer was ordered to take command of Fort McHenry. Two months later he ordered a flag to be made "...so large that the British will have no difficulty in seeing it from a distance."
This 5x8" book, written by Scott Sumpter Sheads (1999) contains the first ever biography of the little known American hero, Major George Armistead, who is directly responsible for two of our most cherished emblems - the Fort McHenry Flag and our National Anthem. Includes a chapter on the history of official SSB from the Fort to its restoration by the Smithsonian Institution. 96 pages with 18 illustrations, 2 maps, appendices, references, and bibliography..
