Expressing your patriotism with patriotic pictures is one form of expression. But to understand patriotism you must understand what that picture really means to you and to our country. The Star Spangled Banner is one of those pictures that embodies the essence of patriotism and our freedom. Also known as the National Anthem, its lyrics and words are clear and have withstood the test of time. So much that it is something that we sing at almost all of our sporting events. The sad truth is that most Americans don't know who wrote the star Spangled Banner. Why it was written and when it was written. I hope this document will help educate those that don't know.

Transcript

  • 1. Conveying Your Patriotism with Patriotic Pictures Displaying patriotic pictures is one of the many ways to convey your patriotism and enthusiasm for our great nation. The National Anthem, also called the Star Spangled Banner, is of he most notable and profound ways of showing your patriotism. This beautiful song has had a profound impact on our country. So much so, that before every sports game in played in our country we sing these beautiful words. Rightfully so, as it was Frances Scott Key who wrote the star spangled banner during the War of 1812 as he watched the bombing of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy. A time when our freedom and existence were being impinged upon. This is a frame-ready 8″ x 10″ print of the star spangled banner and a few close up shots of this wonderful piece. The age old process called letterpress printing is used to print on an ultra-thick 600gsm 100% cotton acid free paper to create a deep impression in the paper from the printing plate. This process is extremely time consuming and intricate as each piece is hand fed through the letterpress. Some of these presses are so old they are still powered by a treadle (foot power).
