Overall, very comprehensive and informative. The site allows the learner to explore various aspects of the history of the U.S. flag including the national anthem. A quick quiz provides the opportunity to demonstrate how much an individual knows about the nation's symbol and dispells some of the myths surrounding its development.

Technical Remarks:

Problamatic getting to the actual site. Requires the individual to dig deeper rather than provides a direct link to the topic.

Time spent reviewing site: 35-40 minutes
