Flag Day

Quick - origin of Flag Day?
Me neither...
Well, here you go...
In 1885 Bernard Cigrand was a young teacher, and decided to assign his students to write essays about the American flag and its significance. This was the beginning of a 31 year mission to bring about a national flag day. In 1916 Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14th as Flag Day, to be annually commerated.
