Bullock Texas State History Museum presents American Flags opening reception
At this special exhibition, guests can explore the transformation of the American flag and the historic events that influenced its many variations of red, white, and blue, and its stars and stripes. Discover flags dating to the War of 1812, ensigns used during the Civil War and Battle of Bull Run, and a 35-star pennant flown by the Buffalo Soldiers. Additional artifacts range from original artwork to rare archival pieces. Learn the nuances of proper flag etiquette, create your own flag design, and experience the growth of the nation through ever-evolving, star-spangled fabric sewn, held, and flown by ordinary and extraordinary Americans.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 16, 2017.
