I'm almost considering making this a regular column, I just don't know if my sanity will allow it.
So last night at Boy Scouts we were learning the words to the Star Spangled Banner, and the history of said song. I also threw in some history about the War of 1812 to keep it lively. But, before we started I wanted to test the boys knowledge.
Who wrote the Star Spangled Banner?
Who was president during the War of 1812?
What started the War of 1812?
The 13 colonies wanted freedom from England, oh, and tea.
Who was Francis Scott Key?
He was a British Naval Captain and fought John Paul Jones.
I have my work cut out for me, and this red mark on my forehead may be permanent.
