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.
