I enjoyed this book although it was dry at times Ferris provides amazing information about the controversy surrounding the Star Spangled Banner since its writing in 1814 I was hoping it would address the current controversy surrounding athletes kneeling during the national anthem but it was written before those events took place Nevertheless it addresses the many times that congressmen and women have tried to change the national anthem to another song This book is a great read for anyone that enjoys studying American history
