Now on Exhibit: Rally 'Round the Flag
In the Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery in the Millyard Museum
Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. - Included with museum admission.
For centuries, the flag has meant many things to many people. Flags are waved in times of war, times of peace, as rallies of protest, display of mourning, and joyous celebrations. A symbol of an ideal, a pursuit, a larger picture, the flag has always represented a notion of unity. Regardless of race, religion or social standing, the flag evokes a feeling in the hearts of all who lie under its protection.
Join us as we examine flags from Manchester's history and learn the stories that these flags tell.  
On exhibit through February 24
