What a glorious sight...what a glorious flag!... No one knows who designed to Stars and Stripes. And, though Betsy Ross usually gets the credit, no one is even sure who stitched together the first model. But from its cloudy beginnings. the American flag has become one of the world's most famous symbols. Here is the story of Old Glory...the first time it sailed round the globe... the first key wrote "The star Spangled Banner"...the flag that Lewis & Clark carried to the Pacific...and how the Pledge of Allegiance came to be.
