• William Harvey Carney was that first
African-American soldier to be awarded the
Medal of Honor. Despite being shot in the chest,
arm, and legs, the soldier, who was born as a
slave, held the American flag high, refusing to
let it touch the ground and fall to the enemy.
The Oscar-winning film Glory depicts the
heroism of Carney.

They disrespect the flag that people of every race have fought for. Just because a person that hurt your feelings is the president.
