207 years ago today, by the dawn's early light, Francis Scott Key saw those broad stripes and bright stars streaming over Fort McHenry. But does that star-spangled banner yet wave over the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave? It's hard to say.

207 years ago today, Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner. As a slave owner, and as a lawyer who represented slave owners of runaway slaves, what better photo to post, to commemorate the 207 anniversary of his creation, than this👇🏼 https://t.co/mvKWUpYZMj

Francis Scott Key drafted the #StarSpangledBanner #OTD in 1814. His song would become our national anthem. Unfortunately, the unpatriotic Left wants to erase our history & forsake our anthem. In Texas, we are defending the anthem with the #StarSpangledProtectionAct. https://t.co/Er63FVXGe3
