This presentation dramatizes the events that transpired during The Battle of Fort McHenry, which was fought in September 1814, during the War of 1812 (1812-1815). The British, having recently captured and burned Washington, DC, needed the victory to solidify their position and ultimately win the war.
During the battle against the fort, Francis Scott Key saw the fighting from a British ship where he was held prisoner and was inspired to write the “Star-Spangled Banner” based on what he had witnessed.
As a believer, we can see or read about natural events of the past and recognize the spiritual parallel. A parallel can be drawn when Francis Key eagerly looked for the flag, and thus was possibly the question the disciples must have asked after the crucifixion of Jesus, is OUR Ensign still standing? But, early on Sunday morning, when the fog of Satan’s bombardments cleared, up from the grave came our Standard, and the believer can still say today, our ENSIGN still stands!
