Over 7,000 school students donning red, white, and blue will create the Star-Spangled Banner Living Flag at Fort McHenry for the Bicentennial of the writing of the "Star-Spangled Banner!" Like their predecessors during the Centennial in 1914, students will literally be making history as part of the Star-Spangled Banner.
