The Star-Spangled Banner is a song. It was written by Francis Scott Key. It is a patriotic song.
The song is the national anthem of the United States. A national anthem is the official song of a country. We sing the national anthem to honor our country.
When you sing the Star- Spangled Banner, you stand. You also face the flag. You place your right hand over your heart. If you are wearing a hat, you take your hat off. This shows respect for our country.
