Capture the Flag by Woden Teachout, 2009

Capture the Flag, a political history of American patriotism by Woden Teachout, 2009.  Hardcover, with dust jacket, published by Basic Books / Perseus, full number line indicating First Edition, from inside front cover … "Capture the Flag traces the flag's meaning through a series of dramatic events: a Revolutionary War sailors' flag ceremony in a British prison, Irish/nativist riots in antebellum Philadelphia, the fall of Fort Sumter, a presidential election that tore the country apart, a civil rights march in Mississippi, the Hard Hat Riots of 1970.  Some of these events are well-known; some are tantalizingly obscure.  In each case, a political or social group redefined patriotism through a symbolic taking hold of the flag; in each case, the flag catalyzed change, transforming the national landscape."  266 pages, new condition.
