the Americans at the battle of Baltimore didn't expect it either.
And I thank my Canadian brother or sister for bringing it up!
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
You did say "dawn's early light".......what did you expect (early dawn's light is close enough)
And to the op....sunrise proper is at a certain time, but sunrise is increasingly viewable several hours beforehand
it is always darkest before the dawn
