Did you know that the Star-Spangled Banner manuscript was once
owned by the Walters Art Museum? Or that it once traveled the entire
United States by train? Or that it was used as an attraction to sell War
Bonds? The mysteries of this historical document, now in the collection of
the Maryland Historical Society, are the topic of a lecture given by Elissa
O’Loughlin, former senior paper conservator at the Walters.
