BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Monday, the United States marked an anniversary that originated right here in Baltimore: National Anthem Day.

On March 3, 1931, President Herbert Hoover designated “The Star-Spangled Banner” as our official National Anthem.

It was written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812 when we saw the flag flying over Fort McHenry during the British attack on Baltimore.
