The Dawn's Early Light

Walter Lord


Walter Lord―author of such best-sellers as A evening to Remember and A Day of Infamy―brings to lifestyles the impressive occasions of what we now name The struggle of 1812―including the burning of Washington and the assault on Baltimore's castle McHenry that encouraged the Francis Scott Key to put in writing what could turn into our nationwide anthem. Lord offers readers a dramatic account of the way a brand new feel of nationwide id emerged from the smoky haze of what Francis Scott Key so lyrically known as "the dawn's early light."
