I am very proud with my outcome project, it has much thought and hard work put into it. I wouldn’t change a thing about what King did for this nation. Inevitably he did accomplish what he set out, equality and desegregation, making him a great leader also an outstanding person. He once said “No one knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for”. King carried out this quote with his own life, he died for what he believed in and because what he believed in.
The Constitution, they believed, must apply for all situations they could possibly go through; and what is impactful and agreeable to their everyday life, which includes the economy, slave trade, how the government would set up, how the states would be represented, et cetra.

We made the flag as a sign of us and our freedom that we got from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. There are thirteen stripes which symbolize the first thirteen colonies. The fifty stars on the top left corner symbolize the fifty states of America. We are a great country because we love our country and the people who live in it. I hope that in the future, the world and our country will become a better and safer place.
To begin to unravel the controversy that lies within the flag, one must understand the history. This flag was developed when the thirteen colonies were trying to obtain freedom from the British during the American Revolution. Benjamin Franklin can be connected with this flag because in 1751, he wrote a commentary to “thank the Brits for their policy of sending convicted felons to America [and] American colonists should send rattlesnakes to England” (“Rattlesnake Flags & Early American Snake Symbolism”). In 1775, a snake symbol arose in areas all over the colonies. It is unknown who exactly started the use of the rattlesnake however, it is known when it was used in a combat.
On September 13th, 1814, the British sent a multitude of bomb shells and rockets onto Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor for 25 hours. This grew to be known as the Battle of Baltimore, taking place shortly after the British had attacked Washington, D.C, as they burned the Capitol, the Treasury, and the President's house. This was just another event that took place during the ongoing War of 1812. During this time Francis Scott Key, an american lawyer, was boarded on a flagship on the Chesapeake Bay to testify for a friend who has been arrested by the British. Key watched the bombing take place on Fort McHenry just eight miles from him.
The red white and blue flag that was never supposed to touch the ground, now lies there, flames engulfing it turning it to ash . What feeling comes to mind when you think of that? Some people are angry by the fact, some shrug at the thought of this Nation’s Flag being burned. Those are two different tones/feelings, just like the ones in William J. Brennan’s Texas v. Johnson Majority Opinion and Ronald J. Allen’s “American Flag Stands for Tolerance.”
