- This year marks the 200th birthday of our National Anthem. If you want to see something really special this July 4th, head to the National Museum of American History to behold the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to pen The Star-Spangled Banner. This summer only, the original manuscript of the National Anthem, on loan from the Maryland Historical Society, will be displayed with the flag at the museum.
