American Memory: June 14

June 14th is Flag Day, an under-celebrated holiday. This entry from American Memory has a wealth of information that is stored in the Library of Congress website about Flag Day and our national flag. You’ll find the design of the flag, as noted in the journals of the Continental Congress, information about the official versions of the flag, pictures of Flag Day celebrations, and a copy of the letter from a 10-year-old that sparked controversy about freedom of speech. It’s a grand, old flag, and this site certainly emphasizes that.
