Description
 
Here is the story of the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the words that became the national anthem of the United States, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” This is a story of the early days of the flag as seen though the eyes of young Caroline Pickersgill, the daughter of an important flag maker, Mary Pickersgill, and the granddaughter of a flag maker for General George Washington’s Continental army. It is also a story about how a symbol motivates action and emotion, brings people together, and inspires courage and hope. “A picture-book snapshot of history.” “Will add unusual dimension to a famous episode in our national story.” Booklist: Starred Review. Full-color illustrations.
