North Carolina, 1861-1865
North Carolina’s current flag is based on one adopted during the civil war. May 20th 1775 was the date of the dubious Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, while May 20th 1861 was the day that North Carolina seceded from the Union. When the current state flag was adopted twenty years after the war, the bottom date was changed to April 12th 1776, the date of the Halifax Resolves.

The American flag is a powerful symbol of freedom and independence for many activist groups who wish to claim full rights as citizens . This commercially marketed lap blanket was altered by hand to include the universal access symbol made up of stitched stars. It was sewn by disability-rights advocates affiliated with ADAPT, which stands for the American Disabled for Attendant Programs Today. ADAPT was founded in 1983 in Denver.
The disability rights movement emerged after World War II as people with disabilities formed communities first through rehabilitation hospitals and special, segregated schools, then through independent living centers and later over the Internet. In comparing experiences of oppression and discrimination, people joined forces and became politically active. This lap blanket vividly conveys the message that civil rights belong to all.
