Show Notes

September 14th will mark the 205th anniversary of the writing of America’s National Anthem. It is observed as "Star Spangled Banner Day.” This episode shines the spotlight—and perhaps some of the rocket’s red glare—on the Star Spangled Banner, to highlight just how extraordinary this anthem is in both history and substance, and asks whether the song may be a small but not insignificant part of the way God blessed America. Featuring an interview with Marc Ferris, author of Star Spangled Banner: The Unlikely Story of America's National Anthem.
