Which Song is the United States National Anthem?

Q: Which Song is the United States National Anthem?

Do you know? My husband and my sister emphatically tried to convince me not long ago that "God Bless America" was the national anthem of the United States. I was convinced that it was the "Star Spangled Banner."

A: Well, today I had time to look it up and, yes, it is the "Star Spangled Banner. " Now I don't feel so bad for not knowing all of the words to "God Bless America".

I wonder how many Americans do not know the song for our National Anthem? Ask your friends and see.

Here are links that tell more about how the "Star Spangled Banner" became our national anthem:
