Young Caroline Pickersgill lives with her mother and grandmother in Baltimore, Maryland. Mrs. Mary Pickersgill, a widow, supports herself and her daughter Caroline by making flags for the ships that sail into the city. Some soldiers from Fort McHenry come to her to order the biggest and best flag in the world, and Caroline helps make it. When the British sail up the Chesapeake Bay to destroy Baltimore during the War of 1812, the defenders at the fort beat them back. After the British sail away the next day, the flag gallantly streaming over the fort is the one Caroline and her mother Mary had sewn. By the dawn's early light, Francis Scott Key saw it waving, the land of the free and the home of the brave. Here is a charming (and true) children's story about a little person who, in helping her widowed mother, became a part of our nation's history.

Written by Rebecca C. Jones. Illustrated by Charles Geer.
