Clarksville’s Custom House Museum hosted a Flag Day Ceremony June 14 with special guest speaker Dr. Dewey Browder, Professor Emeritus of History at APSU. Dozens gathered inside the museum for a presentation by Dr. Browder which focused on a contemporary view of patriotism in America. Dr. Browder posted the Webster’s Dictionary definition of the word Patriot - One who loves his country and supports its authority and interests. He then, in a sobering way, shared his thoughts on how patriotism itself sometimes suffers when we are forced to deal with today’s divisive issues.
