Dolley Madison
• Three o'clock. -- Will you believe it, my sister? we have had a battle, or
skirmish, near Bladensburg, and here I am still, within sound of the cannon! Mr.
Madison comes not. May God protect us! Two messengers, covered with dust,
come to bid me fly; but here I mean to wait for him... At this late hour a wagon
has been procured, and I have had it filled with plate and the most valuable
portable articles, belonging to the house. Our kind friend, Mr. Carroll, has come
to hasten my departure, and in a very bad humor with me, because I insist on
waiting until the large picture of General Washington is secured, and it requires
to be unscrewed from the wall. This process was found too tedious for these
perilous moments; I have ordered the frame to be broken, and the canvas
taken out. It is done! and the precious portrait placed in the hands of two
gentlemen of New York, for safe keeping.

“Our flag was still there!”
Francis Scott Key
“The Star Spangled Banner”
Back of a letter that he had in his pocket
Made our national anthem in 1931
“The Star Spangled Banner”
By Francis Scott Key
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the
twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous
fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the
rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that
our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er
the land of the free and the home of the brave?
We got a hero!
