National Anthem Lighter in Luxury Box

History of Our National Anthem

On the morning of Sept 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key, lawyer and amateur poet, was inspired by the “broad stripes and bright stars” of the United States of America’s flag waving defiantly and victoriously over Fort McHenry, following an attack by the British during the War of 1812. His poem, “Defence of Fort M’Henry”, was set to an existing popular melody of the time, and “The Star-Spangled Banner” was born. It quickly rose in popularity and gained more significance but was not yet recognized as the official US anthem. Congress finally declared “The Star-Spangled Banner” the anthem officially on March 3, 1931.
 
Ninety years later, Zippo celebrates our national anthem with this elegant tribute to the rousing tune. Consecutively numbered and limited to only one thousand pieces, this High Polish Chrome Windproof Lighter has been engraved using Zippo’s MultiCut process to capture notes of the anthem in a decorative fashion. For an additional luxurious flare, the lighter features a gold-plated insert, and as always, is backed by the Famous Zippo Guarantee – “It Works or We Fix It, Free.”
