National Anthem Day takes place on March 03, 2017. "The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States of America. It was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931, which was signed by President Herbert Hoover. The text of America's National Anthem was written by Francis Scott Key after a stormy night of war on the sea during the war in 1814. Actually it was a poem first, which he named “Defense of Fort M'Henry”, according to the combat he had experienced the night before. To honor National Anthem Day people should sing the National Anthem loudly and proud.
