Flag Ceremony…..early

This afternoon, many stitchers and their families, members of the Historical Society and Fort McHenry, and friends gathered to send the flag off for the beginning of its big weekend.
On the serious side, Senator Ben Cardin and Major Vince spoke about the importance of the flag…and the importance of the stitchers recreating history.

The flag was folded and the stitchers gathered around for a photo.
