The Olympics alternate every 2 years between summer and winter games but sometimes the Olympics are canceled due to budgets or other reasons.
This was the first Olympic games when countries had flag bearers.
The Civil War lasted from 1861-1865. More Americans died in this war than in any other war.
Flag Bearers were not famous in World War 2 and had not strategic impact but they were still in the war. They were mainly for increasing moral and to show faith in the country.
Flag Bearers were mainly used for publicity and for when the soldiers marched but not while in combat.
Every Year in the U.S. there are parades and celebrations on July 4th which celebrate the birth of the country. There are flag bearers in the parades representing different groups from war veterans to baseball teams.
