Description
 
Michael Corcoran (au). There are few symbols as potent as the American flag. Why is it so powerful? Why does a piece of cloth resonate so loudly for so many? Why a flag, & why these stripes, those stars? This comprehensive “biography” explores the evolution of our most cherished emblem, from the days preceding the Revolution through the nationwide resurgence of patriotism in the aftermath of 9/11. Traces the entire life of the colors, incl. the fluid design of the flag; the various alternative flags ingrained in the national consciousness, such as the “Don’t Tread on Me” banner & the “Stars & Bars” of the Confederacy; & the role of the colors in war, from our declaration of independence from Britain through the 20th cent. Addresses such matters as flag burning. Photos.
