Why did he write the star spangled banner?

Scott Key wrote the star spangled banner as a symbol of our victory of the wars with the british.

What famous poem did Francis Scott key write?

Star Spangled Banner

Under what conditions were the words in the Star-Spangled Banner written?

In the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key had been escorted aboard a British ship and detained there during the Battle of Fort McHenry in Baltimore harbor. The British pounded the American fort relentlessly with canon fire that night but when the morning came Key saw the huge flag of the fort still there and that the Americans had not given up. This inspired him to write the star spangled banner.

Under what conditions was the star spangled banner written?

The poem, originally called "The Defense of Fort McHenry", was inspired by the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Chesapeake Bay by the British navy during the War of 1812. The American author, Francis Scott Key, was forced to stay with the British during the bombardment and thus witnessed it from across the bay. On the morning after the bombardment, he saw an American flag still flying over the fort and was moved to write the poem.

Why was the Star-Spangled Banner written?

Francis Scott Key was aboard a British warship (negotiating an exchange of prisoners) during the British attack on Baltimore on the night of 7-8 September 1814 (during the War of 1812). As part of the attack, Fort McHenry was subjected to a terrific bombardment, but was not taken out. In the morning, first light revealed a US flag flying over the fort, and Key felt inspired to write the poem that later (only a few weeks later) became the the lyrics of an new American patriotic song. (The music was an old drinking song.)
