WASHINGTON, D.C. – It’s a very special Flag Day this June 14th.  This year marks the 200th anniversary of the creation of the song that would go on to become our National Anthem, the “Star Spangled Banner”.

To celebrate and for the first time ever, the original Francis Scott Key manuscript has been reunited with the very flag whose 15 broad stripes and 15 bright stars inspired Key to write those iconic lyrics.

They’ll both be on display at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

A powerful patriotic symbol of sight and sound.
