VIRTUAL Old Glory: History of the American Flag

VIRTUAL Old Glory: History of the American Flag

In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

With original photographs, vintage images, and patriotic music, Kevin Woyce explores the history of the American Flag, from its origin in the Revolution to the addition of our 50th star in 1960.  He also explains how a poem about the 1814 Battle of Baltimore - set to a popular English melody - became our National Anthem.

Kevin Woyce is an author, photographer, and lecturer. His regional history books, illustrated with original black and white photography, include: Jersey Shore History & Facts, Niagara: The Falls and the River, and Santa’s Hometown.

Information on connecting to the Zoom chat room will be emailed the day before the event.

This program is made possible with the support of The Friends of the Livingston Public Library.
