  • "And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

    That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,

    A home and a country should leave us no more!

    Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.

    No refuge could save the hireling and slave

    From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:

    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"
