Fragments of the Star-Spangled Banner


With Flag Day on June 14, your students will appreciate these photos of three fragments of the flag that flew from Fort McHenry in 1814 and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the "Star-Spangled Banner." And when they're done, have them click on "New Search" to search for any of the hundreds of war-related artifacts in this great museum's collection. Users may search either by conflict or by category of artifact.
