This theater presentation was performed at the National Museum of American History, where the flag that inspired the National Anthem is on display.
The year is 1813. Mary Young Pickersgill (a historical figure with a fictional monologue) is working on a garrison flag to fly over Baltimore's Fort McHenry. She speaks about the War of 1812, the process of creating a giant flag, and thoughts about the meaning of the flag.
