Fifty One Stars

SD Star of India Flag

In San Diego, California.

Aboard the ship Star of India at the Maritime Museum, the Stars and Stripes fly boldly against the bright blue sky.  The Star of India is the world’s oldest active sailing ship, built in 1863, launched a few days before Lincoln gave the Gettysburg address, and holds a place on the Register of National Historic Landmarks.

Happy Independence Day!
