Letter: More on national anthem’s missing third stanza

More on national anthem’s missing third stanza

Eva M. Doyle’s commentary on the third stanza of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was well done.

That stanza is omitted from most song books and I have never heard it sung. My sheet music from 1940 does contain that third stanza.

Doyle did her homework well.

Her article is the first I have seen, locally, that covers the third stanza of the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
