In just a few short days, our Dallas Four Hour Couriers and the rest of the country will celebrate our nation’s 238th year of independence. What an awesome day this 4th of July will be! Many of us plan on commemorating the day with a barbeque, party, or parade. No matter how you celebrate, chances are, at some point this weekend, you’ll hear our country’s national anthem. It’s a symbol of our freedom, a statement of our patriotism, and a tune that means a great deal to every American. But how did it come about? What made the author of this song so inspired to pen the words and music behind it? The history buffs of our Dallas Four Hour Couriers team have the answers.
