OriginEdit

Francis Scott Key was an American lawyer who was taken prisoner by the British during the War of 1812. He tried to negotiate for a prisoner release but was instead kept himself, as he had witnessed the naval armaments the British planned to invade Baltimore with. Key was unable to do anything but watch the bombarding of the American forces at Fort McHenry. The dawn after the battle, Key witnessed the American flag still defiantly waving. He penned a poem to memorialize his experience; it is now remembered as “The Star-Spangled Banner”, the national anthem of the United States.

After the war, he resumed his legal practice and highly supported Andrew Jackson. Key helped smooth over several of Jackson’s scandals, and Jackson appointed him United States Attorney for the District of Columbia. Key also owned several slaves and opposed the abolitionist movement during his time as Attorney.
