The Star-Spangled Banner in World War II
I've been writing about Francis Scott Key and the Star-Spangled Banner in my War of 1812: Not So Forgotten blog.
I found out that during World War II, the flag was removed from the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., for safe-keeping in a storage facility in Virginia.
Way too important of an object to be destroyed.
