4 July 1960: US Flag Acquires its 50th Star

Speaking of the history of our flag:  Fifty years ago this weekend, the "star-spangled banner" acquired its last star, when Hawaii joined the union as the fiftieth state.

TV 22 (WWLP) in Springfield has a nice little photo display on the historical evolution of our national flag.
