Subject: Americans Don't Know The National Anthem


A recent survey shows a problem with our country�s ability to voice its patriotism and national pride. A Harris Interactive� survey of 2,200 American men and women 18 and older shows a shocking lack of knowledge of American historic songs and reveals the role school music programs play in promoting our heritage.

Americans Don't Know The National Anthem As Well As They Think

* Nearly two in three Americans (61%) don�t know all of the words to the Star Spangled Banner
* Of those who claim to know all the words, only 39 percent know what follows �whose broad stripes and bright stars� (answer:�through the perilous fight� )
o 34 percent answered �were so gallantly streaming�
o 19 percent answered "gave proof through the night�
