Old Glory is a common nickname for the flag of the United States, bestowed by William Driver, an early nineteenth-century American sea captain. However, it also refers specifically to the flag owned by Driver, which has become one of the U.S.'s most treasured historical artifacts. Driver was a passionate Unionist living in the Rebel City of Nashville Tennessee in the 1860's. Because the flag displayed a star for every state in the Union, making it a dangerous symbol of Northern Loyalties. When his home was searched by Confederate soldiers, Navy Captain William Driver, hid his beloved "Old Glory" inside of a quilt - keeping it safe from destruction.
