Why is our American flag called Old Glory? Because Capt. William Driver received a flag he was immensely proud of and demonstrated this pride by taking the flag around the globe with him twice. After surviving this incredible voyage, the flag also survived the Civil War and was championed as a local landmark until its story permeated the culture at large, and "Old Glory" became a household term for anyone proud of the flag. Driver is buried in Nashville, and his gravesite is one of the few places in the country authorized by Congress for a flag to be flown 24 hours a day.
Please proudly and properly display Old Glory daily everywhere you can. It's much more than a symbol or a flag.
God Bless America.
