Star Spangled Banner Flag Kit

Regular price $ 24.00

In command of Baltimore’s Fort McHenry during the War of 1812, Lt. Colonel George Armistead ordered a flag "so large that the British will have no difficulty in seeing it from a distance." Sewn by Mary Pickersgill, the massive 30 x 42-foot garrison flag stayed waving over the fort after days of bombardment from British Ships. The flag’s “broad stripes and bright stars” inspired Francis Scott Key to write the poem, “The Defence of Fort McHenry.” Later, the words were set to music, and renamed "The Star Spangled Banner." It became a popular patriotic song and, in 1931, became our national anthem.

 To learn more about Mary Pickersgill and the original Star Spangled Banner, visit the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
