Potpourri of Flags



This is the original flag that flew during the British attack in the war of 1812 at the Baltimore Harbor. It stayed in one family for most of it’s life and until fairly recently is in the process of preserving it. It can be seen in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, click D.C. As I am sure you know, this flag was the inspiration for the poem written by Francis Scott Key, that later became our national anthem. Here is a link where you can read more about that. link

After 9-11 there were lots of American flag pins being made. The large one in the center is my favorite. On the back is the inscription United We Stand Remember 9-11-2001. I love the hat and eagel pin too. The Nixon pin is special to me, and I would imagine it’s a collectable today. My mother in law was very involved in politics, back in her day.This Nixon pin belonged to her. She wore it proudly, especially after his second victory, a landslide victory, in 1972. A couple of the other flag pins belonged to my mother. I just thought you would like to see them on this 4th of July. I wore most of them often back in 2002, when I campaigned with my husband. What an experience that was!

Since I am at Rehoboth Beach, I thought you might like to see the flag, made of shells, that my friend Janet made for in front of her shop, Early Attic.


Happy Independance day-one more thing. I wanted to say thank you to everyone that left congrads on our wedding anniversary yesterday. We very much appreciated that.
