On June 2, I attended the War of 1812 celebration at the Owen County History Museum and heard retired Gen. Carl Black tell the story of the flag at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Md. during the British bombardment of Sept. 16, 1814.
Francis Scott Key witnessed the battle from a British ship while on board to negotiate the release of one of his friends, a prisoner of England. He kept looking to see if the American flag was still waving.
