Answers: 1. Declaration of Independence 2. America Russia 5. farmers 6. Philadelphia 7. Washington, DC 8. HMS Tonnant Anthems An anthem is a stirring song that, when played, reminds listeners about their country. So it is for Americans when we hear The Star-Spangled Banner. However, The Star- Spangled Banner hasn't always been our national anthem; it was just one of several that competed for the right to be so named. Francis Scott Key wrote the words to The Star-Spangled Banner, as he watched the British bomb Ft. McHenry during the War of The poem testified that our flag still flew after the attack. After its printing in the newspaper, people began singing it to the tune of the British song, Anacreon in Heaven. Before The Star-Spangled Banner was officially declared our national anthem in 1931 by an act of Congress, the song America was played at all events to represent our country. In the early days of the colonies, Yankee Doodle was most often heard. Even though The Star-Spangled Banner is our official national anthem, other anthems, such as America the Beautiful, God Bless America, and America are sometimes played and sung. This program offers children a look at the importance of anthems as patriotic expressions. Children will learn the origins and lyrics of these beautiful songs while enjoying the music and interesting historic backgrounds of these symbolic anthems, making for a cadence-marked lesson in early American history. Program Objectives After viewing the program, children should understand: what anthems are and why we sing and play them the historical backgrounds behind the anthems 8 1
