Would The Real National Anthem Please Stand Up?
Speaker: John Attig
Sat, Aug 5, 4:30 - 5:30 pm
Sheffer Recital Hall, The Shedd Institute

What is our "real" national anthem. Officially, "The Star-Spangled Banner", of course. But John Attig notes that the song Americans most readily sing at times of national import or crisis is Irving Berlin's "God Bless America". John discusses the issue with reference to other role of a nation's anthem more generally, bringing in to the conversation other anthems ("O, Canada", "La Marseillaise" "God Save the Queen") and other candidates ("America The Beautiful", "This Land Is Your Land").
