Description

Tisha Thompson gathered a team of experts, historians, sailors and volunteers to help her re-enact Francis Scott Key's journey during the Battle of Fort McHenry, to see if it was actually possible that he saw the American flag when he wrote the Star Spangled Banner. The investigation found that it was not likely for him to have spotted the flag.
