I have no idea when it became a crime to sing the national anthem at the Lincoln Memorial, but a group of high school students were shocked learn that recently.
I’m surprised this did not get bigger attention sooner. High school students from the Young America’s Foundation started singing the national anthem when park police officers interrupted them, citing a federal law that says the area must be “completely content neutral.”
That did not deter them though. Reportedly since so many people, including other visitors the park officers were unable to silence the patriots on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
