 The History of American Symbols & Patriotism: Four Centuries of Decline   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The biggest changes to the symbols themselves—primarily adoption and modification—occurred during the Civil War, the years preceding the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ discovery of America (1892) and the McCarthy “witch-hunt” years (primarily 1954 and 1956).
The biggest challenges to the national symbols have generally occurred during the same periods, especially during the World War I era, World War II (when Jehovah’s witnesses challenged flag salutes in both the United States and Nazi Germany), and the turbulent protest years of the 1960s and early 1970s.
Thus, future historians might say that America’s national symbols were born at the end of the 18th century, slowly declined through the 19th and 20th centuries, and were finally laid to rest in the 21st century.
