Dear Listers

Jennifer is absolutely correct - the words to the US national anthem
(proclaimed by Congress in 1931) were written in September 1814 towards
the end of the War of 1812.

I cannot explain why I mentioned the American War of Independence
(American Revolution) which was fought between 1775 and 1783. I will
stop doing transcriptions at 2 a.m.

Thank you Jennifer, and my apologies for the error.

Alan
