    Unfortunately the video has been removed, but if it's the one I think it is, it's full of inaccuracies.

    Francis Scot Key, was NOT on the British flagship during the bombardment but sent back to his own vessel to await the British conquest of Baltimore which of course didn't happen. Therefore the supposed conversation between the British Admiral and FSK never happened. It's a very inspiriting little piece but lies are lies even if they make you feel good. :(
