Sorry for being a day late and a dollar short, but just figured I'd share the FULL Star Spangled Banner as originally written.

Complete version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" showing spelling and punctuation from Francis Scott Key's manuscript in the Maryland Historical Society collection.

O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bomb bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
'Tis the star-spangled banner - O long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation!
Blest with vict'ry and peace may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto - "In God is our trust,"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

We had a great 4th. The kids were getting antsy waiting for the fireworks, and when they started, they were mesmerized....up until they started covering their ears about half way through, lol.

Have a happy 4th of July everyone.
Remember who we are, what we stand for, how did we got here, what it took, and we cannot forget. Our independence is the constitution and it rests on the second amendment.

Keep safe guys...
Already spotted 2 accidents and what seems like a cop every 5 min..
: sidenote : to all who bashed our country and said they would leave if Trump was elected . please feel free to,look away when the fireworks and festivities begin 😉
Also, should we even be buying fireworks ? I'm pretty sure like 70% of the u.s is in a fire hazzard and WE ARE IN A TRADE WAR WITH CHINA.!.
Lol,ok..be safe guys and have a good one..
