InglesAgil Looks at Weird News

Ky. Capitol History Display Flub Fixed

FRANKFORT, Ky. A goof on a historical display at the Kentucky Capitol has been fixed.
Officials on Thursday deleted a reference to "The Star Spangled Banner" being used as a rallying cry during the American Revolution, decades before Francis Scott Key wrote the poem in 1814.
"That was a typographical error and we have corrected it," said the Rev. Herschel Walker, pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church in Corbin, who donated the exhibit.
On Monday, a day before he lost his race for re-election, Republican Gov. Ernie Fletcher ordered the exhibit that includes the Ten Commandments, the Magna Carta and the "The Star Spangled Banner" to be displayed in the Kentucky Capitol Rotunda.
The plaque about the national anthem, however, incorrectly stated that: "Both the new song and the flag became known as `The Star Spangled Banner' and became a rallying cry for the American patriots during the Revolutionary War."
A day after The Associated Press reported on the goof, officials inserted a period after the word "patriots" and deleted the reference to the revolution.
The display still states that "In God We Trust" was adopted as the national motto on two days; really, it was just once, on July 30, 1956.
