One of America's strangest ceremonies: An officially sanctioned burning of the United States Flag. Conducted this Monday evening at the doorstep of the Sherwood Heritage Center.
Only the United States Marine Corps or the Boy Scouts of America is able to conduct a flag burning legally. The purpose of the ceremony is to "retire" our most precious symbol in a blaze of glory, instead of allowing moth, rust and decay to do it their way.

WATCH THE VIDEO.

The Star Spangled Banner was written almost 200 years ago, during the War of 1812, by Francis Scott Key.
