13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
American Flag and Moon at Ft. Sumter

This photo is of the American Flag and the moon over Ft. Sumter South Carolina. The start of the American Civil War. I took this photo because this was the start of Freedom for all Americans of all colors and sizes. The moon fit perfect with it in the background cause not only was the Flag a symbol of freedom, The moon was a symbol of being able to expand our freedom into space with Americans being the first to land on the moon.
