After a 25-hour bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor, Francis Scott Key peered into the "dawn's early light" on September 14 to see if American troops had survived the British attack. The first stanza of his 1814 poem (and later our national anthem) asked: "Does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave, over the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

You can answer that question with a resounding "Yes!" Show everyone where you stand by flying the "Red, White & Blue" from "sea to shining sea." In appreciation for your gift of $25 or more to help Grassfire build, we'll send you one 3' x 5' American flag. For $50 or more, you'll receive THREE "Star-Spangled Banners." Shipping is FREE!
