5. Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly streaming.

Gave proof through the night,
That our flag was still there.
Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
For the land of the free, and the home of the brave. Describe the scene as to what this refers to and in what war and the scene it was writing about. (Click on Video (Links to an external site.) to know who sewed the flag, who wrote the lyrics, what battle was fought in which War. Make sure this is all part of your description.) Audio is a little bad but this Smithsonian video who is also holding the actual flag holds the answers to the questions.
