This Should Be Interesting

"The American Flag: Two Centuries of Concord & Conflict" is a one-hour television documentary on PBS featuring untold stories of the history of the American flag.

With rare archival footage, beautiful images of the historic flags, and stirring music composed for the film, this extraordinary program combines all these elements with reenactments, and interviews with eminent historians and flag experts about the history of the American experience and the flag.

This special program is the definitive television documentary about the untold history of the American flag.

Check your local PBS station for airing dates. I'll be watching tonight.

I hope PBS understands that not all American flags are also United States flags. My ancestors fought under a flag that was as American as could be but not a U.S. flag.
