National Anthem Day- 80 yrs ago

March 3, 1931: National Anthem Day (80 yrs ago)

The bill designating "The Star Spangled Banner" as our national anthem was adopted by the US Senate and went to President Herbert Hoover for signature. The president signed it the same day.

Share the story with Peter Spier's "The Star Spangled Banner" which richly illustrates the lyrics of the song and shows how they convey the actual events of the battle.
