Hello, I am Francis Scott Key. I wrote the Star Spangled Banner because of the Battle of Baltimore. The Battle of Baltimore was fought over land between British and America. When the British bombed Fort McHenry I began writing what I saw. That is how the Star Spangled Banner came to be.
I am in the British army and we did an invasion of Washington D,C and the capital of the U.S. We burned everything.
The Treaty of Ghent was a peace treaty that ended the War of 1812. The treaty said all conquered territory was to be returned, and commissions were planned to settle the boundary of the United States and Canada.
