Accuracy in Media

The Washington Post with the latest:

A state advisory panel is calling for major changes to “Maryland, My Maryland,” a Civil War-era song that urges Maryland to join the Confederacy, bashes “Northern scum” — and has survived as the state anthem despite six previous efforts to eliminate it.

The panel offered six recommendations, including replacing the song that was written by James Ryder Randall, amending it or abandoning the idea of a state song for 10 years. The panel also suggested that “The Star-Spangled Banner” could be adopted as the state anthem, since it was written by a Marylander, Francis Scott Key, and describes the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore during the War of 1812.
