This is the first American flag to be named “Old Glory.”  made in 1824 for Captain William Driver  Originally bearing twenty-four stars, the worn and tattered flag was remade in 1861 with thirty-four stars, plus a white anchor to signify Driver’s years at sea. When the Civil War began and Tennessee, seceded from the Union, the flag survived, sewn inside a quilt. It was unfurled when Union troops occupied Nashville in 1862. It never flew again, but bequeathed its name to all American flags.
