Above is the official video released by the National Museum of American History showing David Copperfield’s special Flag Day illusion with the historic flag flown over Fort McHenry during the War of 1812′s Battle of Baltimore. It is the very flag seen by Francis Scott Key which inspired him to write The Star Spangled Banner. There is plenty more coverage of this very special illusion on the New Jersey News 12 site, the New Jersey Fox 5 site and the Smithsonian website.
