September 11 at 7 p.m.
Celebrates the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key's writing of America's national anthem in this dramatization of Key's life. Against a backdrop of history, and through the eyes of Key's loving wife Polly, the film highlights Key's personal life, legal career and artistic development. The documentary covers Key's major cases (including the Aaron Burr conspiracy), his vehement opposition to the War of 1812, his enlistment in the militia, his participation in the ill-fated defense of Washington, D.C., and his penchant for poetry and art.
