Winifred ask why was our flag call ''Old Glory''
In 1831, Captain William Driver a ship master from Salem Massachusetts left on one of his many world voyages. Friends presented him with a flag of 24 stars. As the banner opened to the ocean breeze, he exclaimed ''Old Glory''! He kept his flag for many years, protecting it during the Civil War until it was flown over the Tennessee Capital. His ''Old Glory'' became a nickname for all American Flags.
I was a young child when World War II was going on and I was very patriotic and my country and what our flag stands for mean life and death to me. Gods grace and Freedom. I get a little emotional about some things in life today.
