For decades now, the poem "My Name Is Old Glory" has been read at military retirements and patriotic ceremonies. Composed by an unsung Marine who served during WW II named Howard Schnauber, it expresses his feelings about the Star-Spangled Banner. In this book, Schnauber's simple but powerful lines blend with timeless images--from a civil rights march to the Moon landing, from Iwo Jima to September 11, 2001--that capture the courage, strength, and glory embodied in our national treasure. With sidebars about significant flag-raising events, the flag acts of 1777, 1794, 1812, and 1912, flag etiquette, personal reflections about what the flag means to Americans of all ages, and much more, this is sure to be the flag book of the year.
