Most of us have sang it or at least part of it. But do you know how the song came about? This longer text filled, amazingly gorgeous illustrated picture book shows how the song has changed and why since it started. History comes alive from George II in the 1740's to now. See how one of Americas most patriotic songs has had many chapters in its life. ~Reviewed by Jeanette
