Flag Day commemorates the day the Second Continental Congress of 1777 adopted the United States flag. June 14th was officially declared Flag Day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. Although not an official federal holiday, Flag Day is celebrated all over the United States with a variety of parades and parties. Celebrate Flag Day by reading Marla R. Miller's new book Betsy Ross and the Making of America, or any of the myriad books the library has about the history of the United States flag.
