  • The flag consists of thirteen alternating
    horizontal stripes, seven red with six white. The
    stripes represent the original 13 colonies, and
    the white stars represent the 50 states. On the
    flag, the color red stands for courage, white
    stands for liberty, and blue stands for justice.

Why I Chose This Topic
  • I chose to research the Lincoln Memorial because
    Abraham Lincoln is my favorite president. I
    admire the way he stood up for his principles and
    freed the slaves. I believe that this Memorial is
    well deserved and should stand forever so that
    all people will know who this great man was.
