The modern meaning of the flag, was forged in December 1860, when Major Robert Anderson, acting without orders, moved the American garrison from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter, in Charleston Harbor, in defiance of the overwhelming power of the new Confederate States of America. Goodheart argues this was the opening move of the Civil War, and the flag was used throughout the North to symbolize American nationalism and rejection of secessionism. Before that day, the flag had served mostly as a military ensign or a convenient marking of American territory, flown from forts, embassies, and ships, and displayed on special occasions like the Fourth of July. But in the weeks after Major Anderson's surprising stand, it became something different. Suddenly the Stars and Stripes flew – as it does today, and especially as it did after September 11 – from houses, from storefronts, from churches; above the village greens and college quads. For the first time American flags were massproduced rather than individually stitched and even so, manufacturers could not keep up with demand. As the long winter of 1861 turned into spring, that old flag meant something new. The abstraction of the Union cause was transfigured into a physical thing: strips of cloth that millions of people would fight for, and many thousands die for. The flag of the United States is one of the nation's most widely recognized symbols. Within the U.S. it is frequently displayed, not only on public buildings, but on private residences. It is also used as a motif on decals for car windows, and clothing ornaments such as badges and lapel pins. Throughout the world it is used in public discourse to refer to the U.S., not only as a nation, state, government, and set of policies, but also as a set of ideals.

US Flag Evolution Ever since it was created, the us flag has been modified a total of 26 times. The original flag came from the 13 states of the Union; in 1912 it counted 48 stars each symbolizing a state. The latter was not modified for 47 years until the 49-star version was created on July 4th, 1959 to represent Alaska as the 49th member of the Union. After Hawaii had joined the United States, one more star was added to the flag, making it the version that Americans have now. The Thirteen Colonies that were the first 13 states and thus inspired the flag include: Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Georgia, Virginia and Massachusetts. Origins of the US Flag When the USA signed the Declaration of Independence (July 4th, 1776), they had the Grand Union Flag as a symbol of the country. This flag, also known as the Congress flag, the First Navy Ensign, or the Cambridge flag, is similar in design to the flag of the British East India Company, with 13 stripes and the British Union Flag in the left corner. The flag was first displayed in December 1775 on the ship Alfred in Philadelphia and was later used by the American Continental Forces. There is a theory that George Washington raised this flag on New Year's Day in 1776 near his headquaters at Massachusetts, which was misinterpreted by the British as a sign of surrender. Nowadays the Grand Union Flag is displayed as the "first

flag" in US flag history. Though the Grand Union Flag was referred as the national flag, it never received official status. Still, some historians believe that it could inspire the designers of the first official US flag. Others claim that it could originate from the Washington family coat-of arms, which had a white shield, with two red bars underneath three red stars. Many believe the American flag is based on the Sons of Liberty flag, which first had 9 vertical and then 13 horizontal red and white stripes representing the Thirteen Colonies during the American Revolution. “FOREVER IN PEACE MAY YOU WAVE”

Original Design The Flag Resolution was passed on June 14th, 1777 by the Marine Committee in Congress. Due to this occurrence, every 14th of June is known as Flag Day. The Resolution said: Resolved, That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternative red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation. Instead of the star pattern of the modern US national flag, the first one had a circle of stars in the canton. This version of the flag is commonly referred to as the Betsy Ross Flag, thus named after the girl who is believed to have sewn the first flag, based on a design given to her by George Washington. The building at 239 Arch Street, now known as the Betsy Ross House, was built over 250 years ago.

First US Flag There are many theories surrounding the birth of the first US flag. According to the one that seems most probable, Betsy Ross, an american seamstress, was called upon by three members of a Committee from the Continental Congress in May 1776. George Washington, Robert Morris, and George Ross, asked Betsy to sew the first US flag, which they had a design for. At the time, George Washington was the head of the Continental Army. Robert Morris was a very rich man, due to the large amounts of land he owned, and George Ross was an all around, well known man from Philadelphia. Supporting this theory are records from Betsy Ross giving the exact sequence of how things took place. As mentioned before, in May, she was contracted by the Commitee and within a month or so, she completed what is now known as the first US Flag. The flag consisted of thirteen stripes and thirteen starts forming a constallation, which stood for the first thirteen states of the Union. A month later, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud for the first time. With the new flag and the Declaration of Independence, a new nation was born.

Decoration Traditionally, the flag may be decorated with golden fringe surrounding the perimeter of the flag as long as it does not deface the flag proper. Ceremonial displays of the flag, such as those in parades or on indoor posts, often use fringe to enhance the beauty of the flag. The first recorded use of fringe on a flag dates from 1835, and the Army used it officially in 1895. No specific law governs the legality of fringe, but a 1925 opinion of the attorney general addresses the use of fringe (and the number of stars) "...is at the discretion of the Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy..." as quoted from footnote in

previous volumes of Title 4 of the United States Code law books and is a source for claims that such a flag is a military ensign not civilian. However, according to the Army Institute of Heraldry, which has official custody of the flag designs and makes any change ordered, there are no implications of symbolism in the use of fringe.Several federal courts have upheld this conclusion. Traditionally, the Army and Air Force use a fringed National Color for parade, color guard and indoor display, while the Sea Services (Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard) use a fringeless National Color for all uses. “Let Old Acquaintance Be Forgot”

The History of Flag Day On June 14, 1777, with the Revolutionary War raging, the Continental Congress passed a flag resolution, making the Stars and Stripes the official flag of the fledgling nation. The resolution called for a flag bearing 13 stars and 13 stripes to represent the original 13 colonies, soon to be states. While we have long celebrated our country’s birthday on the Fourth of July, the birth of the American flag, the United State’s most recognizable symbol, was largely ignored for many years. In the 1800s, a movement began to designate June 14 as a day to celebrate the creation and adoption of our flag. Several attempts were made by well known organizations, including Sons of the American Revolution, to make Flag Day official. Smaller community groups and elementary school classes joined in the effort and, in 1877, Congress declared that our flag should be flown over all public buildings on each June 14 to mark the birthday of the flag. On June 14, 1891, the Betsy Ross held its first Flag Day celebration. However, 25 more years passed before President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed in 1916 that the anniversary of the Flag Resolution be officially recognized as Flag Day. It was not until August 3, 1949 that President Harry Truman signed the Flag Act of Congress, designating the day as National Flag Day. Today, Flag Day is a national day of recognition, with ceremonies and parades honoring the American Flag.

Any tune like "Yankee Doodle" Simply sets me off my noodle, It's that patriotic something that no one can understand. "Way down south, in the land of cotton," Melody untiring, Ain't that inspiring? Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll join the jubilee! And that's going some, for the Yankees, by gum! Red, white and blue, I am for you! Honest, you're a grand old flag! Verse 2 I'm no cranky hanky panky, I'm a dead square, honest Yankee, And I'm mighty proud of that old flag That flies for Uncle Sam.

Morning Journal • Flag Day 2011 • Tuesday, June 14, 2011 • Page 13 "You're a Grand Old Flag" is a patriotic song of the United States. The song, a spirited march written by George M. Cohan, is a tribute to the U.S. flag. In addition to obvious references to the flag, it incorporates snippets of other popular songs, including one of his own. Cohan wrote it in 1906 for George Washington, Jr., his stage musical. The song was first publicly performed on February 6, the play's opening night, at Herald Square Theater in New York City. "You're a Grand Old Flag" quickly became the first song from a musical to sell over a million copies of sheet music. The title and first lyric comes from someone Cohan once met; the Library of Congress website notes: The original lyric for this perennial George M. Cohan favorite came, as Cohan later explained, from an encounter he had with a Civil War veteran who fought at Gettysburg. The two men found themselves next to each other and Cohan noticed the vet held a carefully folded but ragged old flag. The man reportedly then turned to Cohan and said, "She's a grand old rag." Cohan thought it was a great line and originally named his tune "You're a Grand Old Rag." So many groups and individuals objected to calling the flag a "rag," however, that he "gave 'em what they wanted" and switched words, renaming the song "You're a Grand Old Flag." — Library of Congress In the play itself, the scene with the Civil War soldier was replicated. The soldier's comment was the lead-in to this song. Thus the first version of the chorus began, "You're a grand old rag / You're a high-flying flag". Despite Cohan's efforts to pull that version, some artists such as Billy Murray had recorded it under its original title, "The Grand Old Rag", in advance of the play's opening, and many copies under that title still circulate among collectors. Cohan's second attempt at writing the chorus began, "You're a grand old flag / Though you're torn to a rag". The final version, with its redundant rhyme, is as shown to the left. The song was used in a major production number in Cohan's 1942 film biography, Yankee Doodle Dandy.
