Description
 
Richard H. Schneider (au). Here is a colorful story of our flag from its humble origins more than 200 years ago to its significance in the 21st cent. Combining history & legend, fact & lore, Schneider relates how the flag has evolved -- through changing times & honored traditions -- & sets the record straight on widely held misconceptions. Includes many enlightening stories, such as the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key’s “The Star-Spangled Banner”; the flag that was stained by Lincoln’s blood at Ford’s Theater in 1888; & the flag raised at Ground Zero amid the wreckage of the World Trade Center. In addition to historical facts & little-known lore, he offers recollections from celebrities & ordinary citizens whose lives have been touched by Old Glory. Color & b&w illustrations.
