Guymon, Oklahoma

Celebrating the Flag and the Fourth with Music:  Independence Day stirs feelings of patriotism even in cemeteries, where American flags seem to be the perfect complement to holiday celebrations. When you see them, you may think of some patriotic tunes that fit the mood of the day. What's this one?
     "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.
     Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
     O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Recognize it? If not click here. Elmhurst Cemetery. [2013]
