March Third Marks ‘National Anthem Day’


Whether it’s a rally, a ball game, or inside a classroom, odds are most Americans know this patriotic tune.

March 3 is National Anthem Day.

Francis Scott Key wrote the “Star Spangled Banner” during the War 1812.

President Herbert Hoover signed a congressional resolution making it the official National Anthem, of the United States on March 3, 1931.

The tune has faced many controversies over the years, such as questions of lip-singing, standing versus kneeling, and yet it stays the quintessential ode to America lending itself to creative arrangements and interpretation.
