Here is an interesting tidbit about the origin of the melody of The Star-Spangled Banner. [Via InstaPundit.]

"May our club flourish happy, united and free!
And long may the Sons of ANACREON intwine
The Myrtle of VENUS with BACCUS'S Vine." [The Anacreontic Song, verse VI.]

Let's party! Open a bottle of wine and celebrate the greatest country in the world! :)
