Back in 1958, as Alaska and Hawaii neared statehood, a high school history teacher in Ohio gave his class an assignment to redesign the American flag. Then-16-year-old Robert Heft got a B-. He then sent his cloth design to the White House, which Eisenhower chose. Needless to say, Heft’s grade got changed to an A.
Granted, the design wasn’t very different—just 50 stars instead of 48. But having been the only submission out of thousands that was actual sewn cloth, Heft’s stood out to Eisenhower. So in that spirit, I’ve got plenty of creative 4th of July Instagram captions for you to stand out from the crowd.
