New Flag Book

Flag: An American Biography is a new book by Marc Leepson that traces the life story of the flag, from its creation in 1777 to its emergence as a popular symbol of patriotism during the War Between the States, its burning by protesters during the Vietnam War and its use as a symbol of a united nation at war against terrorism after Sept. 11, 2001.

I just received my copy, and have not begun to read it yet. You can find reviews of it American Vexillum and at The Houston Chronicle.
