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.

American National Flag-35 Stars-Southern Sympathizers Bullet Holes-A Folk Art Masterpiece
Few American flags capture the essence of the Civil War like this 35 star homemade flag, made in 1863 along the Ohio-West Virginia border to celebrate West Virginia statehood. West Virginia was born amidst the conflict of the Civil War when the northwestern counties of Virginia voted to secede from the confederacy and form a new state for the Union. This flag was flown from the Olive Green General Store in Olive Green, Ohio, a town which no longer exists. The flag, created by the Ohioans to boldly welcome their West Virginia countrymen back to the Union, stands as a testament to the tensions stirred by West Virginia’s secession. According to family lore (and apparent upon close visual inspection), the three holes to the right-center of the flag are bullet holes shot through the flag by dissenting southern sympathizers as it hung on the general store.
