Repairing The Star-Spangled Banner Flag

Repairing The Star-Spangled Banner Flag

Amelia Fowler leads a team of seamstresses who are attaching a linen backing to the Star-Spangled Banner flag. This is the flag which Francis Scott Key saw flying over Fort McHenry after a 25-hour British bombardment in 1814. The "needlewomen" are shown here with Fowler in 1914 working on the flag in the Smithsonian Institution Building ("the Castle"). They are believed to have made some 1.7 million individual stitches. | Located in: National Museum of American History.
