“Oh say can you see,” these words are very familiar to all Americans. So I share with you an image of the Star Spangled Banner. This is not the original banner that Mr. Key seen waving in dawns early light, the original is on display at the Smithsonian museum. But the image seen here was captured at the Space Farms Museum in Sussex, NJ. Nonetheless it is still very interesting to see something so old on display from a very important time in American history. Sadly enough as I commented in an earlier post about Space Farms Museum where I seen people pay good money to enter the museum and then just breeze on by some of the most interesting displays, this too was one display that gets past over. While I was looking at the flag in its display case I seen several people pass on by and not one stopped to look. Kind of sad I thought, but I guess, “To each his own.” However I thought it nice to share the image with you here today.
