Star-Spangled What?

Based on symbols commonly used at the time by our founding fathers, it is clear to see a direct connection of terms that have specific meaning:

*light* illuminated ones - back of the dollar bill,

*twilight* - dream of the new world

*broad stripes* - stripes of england.

*ramparts* Fortification .
a.
a broad elevation or mound of earth raised as a fortification around a place and usually capped with a stone or earth parapet.

*rockets red glare, bombs in air* first WAR PROPAGANDA in the NATIONAL ANTHEM

*proof through the night that OUR flag was STILL there* American Supremecy! 'merica!

*star spangled banner* illuminated symbol

*land of the free and home of the brave* land of the free-mason, home of the native brave

O say can you see by the dawn's early *light*,
What so proudly we hailed at the *twilight's* last gleaming,
Whose *broad stripes* and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the *ramparts* we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the *rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,*
Gave *proof through the night that our flag was still there;*
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country, should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation.
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
