Dawn's Early Light


"O say can you see by the dawn's early light." These words were penned on the back of an envelope in 1814 by young lawyer and poet Francis Scott Key. Key was held captive on a Royal Navy ship as British ships in Chesapeake Bay bombarded Fort McHenry throughout the night. When dawn broke, the fort was still standing, the American flag still waving. It was a turning point in the war of 1812, and the birth of our national anthem, the "Star Spangled Banner." This blanket, woven in our American mills, commemorates the Bicentennial of that momentous morning in U.S. history. Fifteen red and white stripes and stars represent those on the flag at that time. Striations and imprecise images give the design a vintage American look. Napped. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
