Oh, say can you see -- the original "Star-Spangled Banner." The handwritten manuscript and the flag that inspired the song will be on display together, for what's believed to be the first time.
The flag has been at the Smithsonian inWashington since the early 1900s, but the text joins it on Flag Day, June 14th, for three weeks. This September marks 200 years since it was written by Francis Scott Key.
