When Vermont and Kentucky were admitted to the Union, Congress added a stripe and a star to the flag for each of them.This flag of 15 stars and 15 stripes waved over Fort McHenry when the British Navy attacked on the night of September 13, 1814. Francis Scott Key was a hostage on the British Frigate “Surprise”. All night through he watched the gallant defense of Fort McHenry. In the first pale streaks of dawn he saw that the flag still proudly waved over the ramparts and was inspired to write the words of our National Anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” It was this banner under which the American Navy waged a war against the Barbary Pirates and which they hoisted over the fort at Derne, Tripoli, on April 27, 1805, following an assault on that place by American Marines and Bluejackets. It was the flag under which Abraham Lincoln was born, February 12, 1809. It was the flag under which Commodore Perry won the battle of Lake Erie, and General Andrew Jackson the signal victory over the British Regulars under Sir Edward Pakenham at New Orleans.

The Star-Spangled Banner Flag, also known as the Great Garrison Flag, is a historical flag that is famous for its connection to the United States national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The flag features fifteen stars and fifteen stripes, representing the fifteen states in the Union at the time.
The Star-Spangled Banner Flag was made in 1813 by Mary Pickersgill, a seamstress in Baltimore, Maryland. The flag was commissioned by the United States government to fly over Fort McHenry during the War of 1812, as a symbol of American defiance against British forces. The flag was so large that it required the help of many people to sew it together, and it measured 30 by 42 feet.
On September 13, 1814, British forces attacked Fort McHenry, and the flag flew throughout the battle. The next morning, American soldiers raised a smaller flag over the fort, indicating that they had successfully defended it. The sight of the American flag inspired Francis Scott Key to write the poem that would become the national anthem.
The Star-Spangled Banner Flag is now preserved at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
