The Story of the American Flag, Soft Cover

Originally published in 1910, The Story of the American Flag tells the thrilling history of The Stars and Stripes in picture, prose, poetry, and song. This true handbook of the flag was written in cooperation with The Youth’s Companion, a Boston publication that supported the presence of the American flag both in and over our nation’s schools.

The author, Wayne Whipple, highlights the honor and glory of the American flag by recounting the struggle and strife during which the flag’s design evolved. Mr. Whipple also emphasizes the many reasons for Old Glory’s eminence as a banner of peace. The beauty and patriotism that is so indelibly woven into the fabric of the American flag is explained with such clarity and enthusiasm that The Story of the American Flag makes a perfect resource for young and old alike.

Soft cover. 145 pages. Book measures 6 inches in length by 9 inches in height.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
