STARS AND STRIPES: Fabric of the American Spirit
The Lebanon Township Museum is extremely honored to be hosting an exhibit entitled "The Stars and Stripes: Fabric of the American Spirit" from June 13th to July 13th.
From its birth on June 14th, 1777 until 1912, no laws were enacted governing the arrangement of stars on the American flag, leaving their placement to the sole discretion of the flag maker. Flags from before 1912 with varying designs and configurations of stars will be on display as part of this exhibit. Others include handwritten inscriptions and stamped overprints. Together they trace the evolution of  the American flag and bring to life the personal and historical accounts that speak to the character of our nation and provide a link to important events of the past.
Collector, author and historian J. Richard Pierce is a retired senior banking executive whose lifelong love of the Stars and Stripes parallels his strong interest in politics and US history. He has been collecting flags since 1991 when he acquired his first flag as a thirtieth wedding anniversary gift from his wife, Barbara. 
An opening reception will be held on Thursday June 13th at 6pm with a lecture entitle "Evolution of the American Flag" to be given by Mr. Pierce at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served. Additional festivities to celebrate this exhibit will include a Flag Day Celebration on Saturday June 15th at 1pm which will include an Apple Pie Baking contest, churn your own ice cream, Father's Day & Patriotic crafts for kids and more. A closing lecture entitled "Famous Flags in American History" will be presented by Mr. Pierce at 2pm on Saturday July 13th.
