This storyteller is so historically misinformed, its ridiculous. This was not during the Revolution, but the War of 1812. We were NOT the "colonies", but the Untied States of America. It was Ft, McHenry, not Ft. Henry. There were 19 British ships, not "the entire British fleet".

This is an incredible testament given to the dedication of the American people in protecting the values of this country. This video ought to be shown in every public school.

well bobeagle, what are you even talking about, how should the story of the national anthem be told, by the slave from the plantation? the white american is who carved out the nation both politically and militarily. but other than once again throwing race into the issue i agree this country is for everybody, but thats how it happened, you cant rewrite history so its a fairy tale, it is what is it, you just want to put a positive spin on history so you can feel good about yourself

Again, we have history somewhat distorted and viewed only from the perspective of white americans...We have images of the great flag, the eagle, and white americans. History has never been correctly published; there were others present; not just white americans but all americans continue to bear the proud heritage of our country and flag. It is not just this war but every war which bear the marks of our great nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL (Americans)!

Come on Beritenor, get a life! They may have gotten the location and war wrong, but the general idea behind the video is still the main point. What our founding fathers went through to make this country the greatest on earth is an accomplishment that will never be repeated again. And the video is even more important today, as a reminder of what made us great, to what the enemies of this country-foreign and domestic-are trying to do to turn this proud nation into a weak and third rate nobody. America needs to stand together and fight for what made us who we are.

This is a beautiful rending of the story of our National Anthem & one we need to ponder on at this time in our country.

This is the worst example of distorted history I have ever run across! The creator of this story has obviously never searched for truth, which is easily found. The bulk of this is pure BULL!! Try this site for the facts: http://www.usflag.org/francis.scott.key.html

What a wonderful reminder of our heritage! Our country is under attack from inside and out. It reminds us to stand up for the right things and oppose those that would cause us harm.

Good call on the War of 1812, but it was the British fleet that attacked the fort.

re: our National Anthem: The war was not the revolution it was the war of 1812. It was not the British that were involved, but the French. If you correct those two glaring errors, the film will be more credible. Thank You.

Send this to President Obama and the Bank executives. They can take our money but they will never take our spirit or our country.

This is a great story. Who documented all this (especially the dialogue)? Are there any sources cited? If so, someone should update Wikipedia.

I am a physician and soldier. I would consider it the greatest of honors if by some chance my coffin was draped with that great flag and my death meant that in some way the dignity and honor of this country was preserved. Awesome

Dear ASM_113. We were aware of the minor mistakes when the video was placed on the site. History does support the fact that the flag was held in place by the bodies of patriots who gave their lives to keep it flying.

The production and the storytelling are wonderful. I was distracted though by some basic factual mistakes. It was the War of 1812, so we were not colonies, we were a proud new country more than 30 years old. And it was Fort McHenry, not Fort Henry.

Francis Scott Keys was a brave and holy man! You notice that he did not pick up a gun! The men all prayed! There is something spectacular about this video!

I am very PROUD to be associated with FootySites.com and to have a great friend and associate who put this video together. Also to ED OWEN, for who made this video possible. Everyone should STAND UP and be PROUD that our fathers had the courage to take on this value. We need those in D.C. to take notice and watch this video as well. Maybe they would learn something about our great nation.... the U.S.A.
