    Francis Scott Key adapted it making the first line: “O say do you see by the dawn’s early light” etc. to make what eventually (1935?) became the o0fficial US anthem. It describes the bombardment etc. of a fort near Washington during the War of 1812), where the flag stayed flying all night.

    From the pacing of those notes it looks like the Marseillaise.
