"I was there when the rockets glared red and bombs were bursting in air. Scotty and I, you may know him as better as Francis Scott Key, were playing hearts at the time....."

A very moving piece, except that the Star Spangled Banner was written during the War of 1812, not the Revolution.....

Lot wrong with video. As mentioned The National Anthem was written during the War of 1812. Francis Scott Key was kept aboard ship after the prisoner exchange meeting because the British felt he knew to much about their naval disposition, not because they thought the war was near the end. FSK was looking at Fort McHenry not Fort Henry, anyone familiar with the Civil War appreciates the important difference, also important to note that Fort McHenry was one of the primary defenses for Baltimore. The fort was not a refuge for women and children, instead it was manned by 1000 or so soldiers, the British had roughly 19 ships not hundreds. Lowering the flag was not part of a British unlimited, lowering the had long since been a symbol for surrender. People never held the Flag up, the idea of it being held in place by "Patriots Bodies" while neat is not fact. Sorry I can't join in the chorus of people claiming that his is a great video.
