This was a very enjoyable read. If you have not heard the verse that followed the original song you should look it up it is quite moving. A retired marine sings it on youtube at a recent tea party
This is more exciting and a better read than any in my history books. Maybe if you wrote the history books, I would have liked that subject more.
How thankful we can be that the flag was still flying. Thank you for an enjoyable read.
Oh, I really love this - a small moment in history brought to life so masterfully. You need to be writing historical fiction, friend; I would definitely read it, as would many many others!
I'm not an American, but there is something about that song that brings a lump to my throat. I've read how the song came about before, but reading it in the first person made it even better. Well done!
