Early American flags were often beautifully handmade objects that expressed in both craft and design the patriotic sentiments of their makers. This volume presents 70 examples of these flags, with a short essay that gives the history of the flag from the founding of the nation of America up until 1912, when US law finally decreed that the design of the flag must be uniform across the land.
