Unforgettable Images of Old Glory during WWII

From the time of Betsy Ross to this very day the symbol of our great nation, Old Glory has been there.  In the early 1940s she hung behind a President who fearlessly addressed his citizens after the dastardly attack on Pearl Harbor. She flew on our battleships as they sailed to Normandy and was carried to the top of Mt. Suribachi by heroes. America stood together at the height of the world's greatest ever conflict and our flag was ever present. Each of the following images during The Second World War also show the Stars and Stripes in the photo. Long may Old Glory wave and long may we stand united in honor to those who have courageously gone before US. President Franklin D. Roosevelt asks for Declaration of War via Wikimedia Commons, public domain (December 8, 1941)         A view of lower Manhattan from the S.S.

The former was Benjamin Harrison... The latter was his son, William Henry Harrison, whose life we will now consider. He was born on the 9th of February, 1773. At a suitable age he was placed in Hampden Sydney College, where he was graduated; and then, under the supervision of his guardian (Robert Morris), in Philadelphia, prepared himself for the practice of the medical art. At about that time an army was gathering to chastise the hostile Indians in the North-west. Young Harrison's military genius was stirred within him, and having obtained an ensign's commission from President Washington, he joined the army at the age of nineteen years. He was promoted to a lieutenancy, in 1792; and, in 1794, he followed Wayne to conflicts with the North-western tribes, where he greatly distinguished himself. He was appointed secretary of the North-western Territory, [...]
