    Re: Who Knew?

    I never knew, nor did I give it much thought, although most songs have more than one verse. I find the first verse difficult enough to recall, and the tune is not the best, although I can get a little teary eyed when I sing it.

    Re: Who Knew?

    There are 4 stanza's written by Francis Scott Key in 1814
    There is a 5th Stanza written by George Spowers in 1824
    And a 6th Stanza written by Oliver-Wendell Holmes during the Civil War.

    If you wish to view the words to all the Stanza's and why they wrote the words.

    I was not aware of the Spowers stanza. Thanks for the info.
