When President Andrew Johnson died in 1875, one of his final wishes was that his body be wrapped in one of the most sacred national symbols, the U.S. Flag.

In keeping with this deep reverence for the U.S. flag, the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site will present a Flag Day program at 6 p.m. this Friday at the Andrew Johnson National Cemetery, 101 Monument Ave.

Visitors are invited to explore and discover more about the origins, history and etiquette of the U.S. flag. In addition, particpants will be taking part in a flag retirement ceremony.

The U.S. Flag Code states that, "When a flag is worn beyond repair, it shall be retired in a dignified manner, the preferred method is by burning."

The retirement ceremony will fulfill this requirement.

"This program will serve as an excellent opportunity for visitors to witness a solemn, patriotic and emotionally moving ceremony normally conducted within the confines of Scouting and veterans organizations," said Park Superintendent Lizzie Watts.

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site encourages visitors of all ages, especially Scouts and other youth organizations from the community, to attend this program.

The entrance to the cemetery for this ceremony is off Vann Road in Greeneville. For more information, please contact the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site Visitor Center at (423) 638-3551.
