Celebrating the bicentennial of the U.S. National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner” (1814–2014), this exhibit illustrates the cultural history of the national anthem in American life. An original 1814 sheet music imprint of "The Star-Spangled Banner," one of about a dozen known surviving issues, is on display in the Audubon Room.

Most of the items on display are held by U-M Library and the William L. Cements Library. Additional items are borrowed from the personal collection of Mark Clague, associate professor of musicology at U-M, and the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
