The national anthem of the United States of America is probably one of the most recognized tunes in the world, yet the meaning of the words is largely a mystery, even to those who know them. The story of how and why the anthem came to be written and why it has the words it does is the story of a doctor and a lawyer caught up in a war within a greater war that rocked the very foundations of Europe.
