For years, the Star-Spangled Banner has been on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. Now, fragile and beginning to show signs of deterioration, the flag will undergo a multi-million dollar preservation effort in an attempt to secure its existence for generations to come. This program about the Star-Spangled Banner will tell the story of our country's most famous flag: - From its creation in 1813 by a Baltimore flag maker named Mary Pickersgill - Through its role as the inspiration for our national anthem - To the multi-million dollar conservation effort over 185 years later by the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History The program will be visually rich, weaving together the following elements: - Historical recreations of important events from the War of 1812, including an original pyrotechnic reenactment of the bombardment of Ft. McHenry - Exclusive behind-the-scences footage of the Smithsonian's conservation work, and the Museum's deinstallation of the Star-Spangled Banner in December, 1998 - Original 35mm footage of the flag in its current exhibit space - Period drawings, etchings and paintings - Archival manuscripts and documents dating to the early 1800s.
