#美国大选# #历史上的今天# 1814年,弗朗西斯·斯科特·基创作“星条旗”歌词(美國美中報道)

#美国大选# #历史上的今天# 1814年9月13日,弗朗西斯·斯科特·基(Francis Scott Key)写下了一首诗,这首诗后来被谱了曲,并于1931年成为美国的国歌“星条旗”。“星条旗”在19世纪成为了全美最受喜爱的爱国歌曲之一。在南北战争期间,它获得了特殊的意义,当时许多美国人用音乐来表达对国旗以及它所代表的理想和价值观的感情。到19世纪90年代,军方已将这首歌用于各种仪式,要求在升旗和降旗时演奏这首歌曲。尽管“星条旗”广受欢迎,但直到1931年它才成为美国国歌。

#OnThisDay in 1814, Francis Scott Key penned a poem which was later set to music and in 1931 became America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” During the 19th century, “The Star-Spangled Banner” became one of the nation’s best-loved patriotic songs. It gained special significance during the Civil War, a time when many Americans turned to music to express their feelings for the flag and the ideals and values it represented. By the 1890s, the military had adopted the song for ceremonial purposes, requiring it to be played at the raising and lowering of the colors. Despite its widespread popularity, “The Star-Spangled Banner” did not become the National Anthem until 1931.(美国驻华大使馆)
