No other country in the world can match the intensity of emotion we Americans feel for our flag. It has been that way for over 200 years. Americans have always taken great pride in our country which makes the flag that represents the United States also very important to all citizens. The flag has always had a place in the hearts of the American people, even though in the early days most could not afford to have their own flag. To most Americans the site of a flag displayed in a parade or on the mast of a large military ship can bring goose bumps of patriotism.

The flag has always been carried into battle in some form or another. In most cases in the past, there was one man that was given the job of carrying the flag onto the battlefield. It was his job to make sure the flag could be seen by all as well as to make sure the flag never fell to the ground. If he got shot someone else would take the flag and carry it on. It was important that the flag be held up high for all to see at all times as a symbol of hope and triumph over adversity. A good example of why this was so important is when Frances Scott Key wrote the “Star Spangled Banner,” He noted that as the bombs burst in the air over Fort McHenry, he could see by the light from the explosions that the flag was still flying over the fort. That assured him that the fort had not fallen and the union had not been defeated.

There’s no better feeling than when you’re in battle and pinned down by the enemy, and out of nowhere you see the American flag coming. Your heart skips a beat because you know help is on the way. There’s an old saying that said, “When you see the flag coming over the hill you know the Cavalry is coming”. The American flag has played a huge role in our country’s history and in the process became steeped in a history of its own. A history that every American needs to know and understand. A history that cannot and should not be forgotten. Patriotism must remain a large part of our culture so that this country can remain the superpower that it is today. Freedom is worth fighting for and our youth needs to understand why it’s so important. This book gives some insight into the United States Flag hostory.
