Commenti 0 A country is composed of people situated on a piece of land who share some basic traits—language, mores, and customs. Later, those people forge a nation and it adopts symbols that serve as identifiers of their beliefs, laws, and aspirations. No symbol of any sovereign nation is more telling, nor more high, than its flag. It is carried into battle and waved during peacetime. It bedecks halls of justice and watches over public lands. A man will doff his hat for it and all will raise their head for it. Of all secular symbols, a nation’s flag is the most sacred—and no flag has been as esteemed as the flag of the United States of America. It symbolizes freedom, bravery, justice, and hope to people around the world, citizen of this great land or not. A nation’s flag not only tells a story, it has a story. The story of one Betsy Ross and the creation of the American flag is an exceptional one. In this first book of the About U.S. series, you will thrill at the description of her creative design and then read agog as the Founding Fathers, guided by the Stars and Stripes, forge a nation that would secure freedom and happiness for all—and would continue to do so to this very day. Long may it wave o’er these hallowed lands! And may God continue the bless us with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Anthony R. Michalski Editor
