Recreating the star spangled banner flag is no easy feat---but hundreds of volunteers have taken on the challenge---as the 200th anniversary of the making of the original flag draws near.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made the first stitch when the project began back on the fourth of July. Since then, other city and state officials have made their mark as while as hundreds of community members and visitors from around the world.
Amber Miller visited the Maryland Historical Society where the flag is being hand stitched and tells us about this historic milestone.
