e THE STAR BANGLED BANNER
On September 3, 1814 Francis Scott Key and Johns S. Skinner of Baltimore Maryland, an American prisoner exchange agent ert sail from Baltimore aboard the Sloop , HMS Mindon, flying a flag of truce, approved by James Madison.
Their goal, to secure the release of Dr. William Beaner the elderly and popular town physician of upper Marlboro a who had been captured in Washington DC and had been accused of harbouring British deserters. Key and Skinner boarded the British Flagship HMS Torranton September 7th and spoke with General Robert Ross and Admiral Alexander Cochrane, over dinner, while they also discussed War plans. In the beginning, Ross and Cochrane refused to release Beaner and the other Americans.Because Key and Skinner had heard much of the preparations for the Baltimore attack they were held captive until after the battle, first aboard HMSS Urpriseand later back onto the Mindon Sloop, waiting behind the British fleet.
On September 13 at 7 AM, the battle was underway., after which some British Gunboats attempted
Bombardment of the Fort continued until1AM, on September 14, after which some British Gunboats attempted to slip pas the Fort and effect a landing in a Cove to the west, but they were turned away by gunners at nearby Fort Covington, the City's last line of defense
During the rainy night Key had witnessed the terrible bombardment and observed that the Forts smaller "Storm Flag" continued to fly, but once the shelling stopped and it grew dark, he would not know how the battle turned out until dawn.
By then the Storm Flag had been lowered and the larger Main Flag had been raised.
Key was inspired by the Americas and the sight of enormous American Flag flying triumphantly above the Fort.
The next day he wrote the poem of what he had observed and prayed for, through the long night of battle against terrible odds, through the dark and the rain.
