American Flag | U.S.A. and Calif.

There has been long debate on who made the first American flag along with who continues to make the best. I Don’t know the answer to either of those questions but Betsy Ross comes to mind and I heard she was one heck of a seamstress. It’s said that she worked in the upholstery business, repairing torn uniforms for the Revolutionary War solders, plus made tents and blankets for the Continental Army of 1779. As compelling as the history is to me, I became fixated on the rules. Rules ranging from how the flag should be handled to displayed to discarded.

The Saturday Evening Post.

This bimonthly American magazine was published from 1897 to 1971 capturing current events, editorials, human interest, poetry, humor and other stories/illustrations. The Post was known for its timely illustrations and original fictitious works, most notably the illustrations by Norman Rockwell and stories by William Faulkner and Agatha Christie.

In 1969, The Post along with Curtis Publication Co. lost a landmark “slander” suit after claiming Georgia head football coach, Wally Butts and Alabama head coach Bear Bryant conspired to “fix” games. Each coach was awarded $1.8 million, leading to the decline of the iconic magazine.
