Happy 228, USA!

An anecdote from http://wordsmith.org/words/anacreontic.html:

The US national anthem ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ is set to the tune of the English song ‘To Anacreon in Heaven’ which was the ‘constitutional song’ of the Anacreontic Society, a gentlemen’s music club in London.

It is worth subscribing to A.Word.A.Day to expand your mind with stuff like this.
