Image: Inventing the American Flag: How the Stars and Stripes Was Woven from Symbols | Hardcover: 320 pages | by Henry W. Moeller (Author). Publisher: Roaring Forties Press (November 1, 2019)
National Flag Day (1777)
-- commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted the American continental army after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Read: Inventing the American Flag: How the Stars and Stripes Was Woven from Symbols
-- With gorgeous four-color reproductions of an amazing array of art from diverse cultures and eras, Inventing the American Flag explores the symbolism of the US national flag and investigates why the founding fathers chose the images they did to represent the new nation. Looking at the flag from an art-historical background, Inventing the American Flag is radically different from the patriotic-tract, antiquarian-records, and Masonic-mystery approaches with which this topic is usually treated. Henry W. Moeller weaves together seemingly disparate strands of history to offer a new understanding of the forces that contributed to the thirteen-star flag.

I'm Your Flag So Please Treat Me Right! is a story told by the American flag. It explains through the eyes of our flag what the red, white, and blue stand for, and what the flag means to all Americans.
