The Story Behind the Story – Our National Anthem
Just how important IS this flag?
It’s just a symbol, right? Yes, but it’s one of the most important symbols we’ll ever encounter – because its the symbol of freedom.
And how important is the National Anthem? Is it just a song? Read the history behind it and then decide.
Jim (Gymbeaux) Brown sends out a weekly “Nuggets for the Noggin,” and this week it centers around our National Anthem.
Do you know all the words? Do you know what went on that night as Ft McHenry was being bombarded? Do you realize how different our lives might be today if that flag had not made it through the night?
If you enjoy history or just want to know more about America, visit Nuggets for the Noggin and find out.
Then say thanks to all those brave souls who have fought to keep our flag flying…
