OLD GLORY

0 Comments /
Today, 237 years ago, Congress accomplished something productive and lasting. One year earlier, in 1776, America had declared ourselves a free and independent nation. George Washington requested that Betsy Ross, a Philadelphia seamstress, make up a flag to be used on the fields of battle and in Revolutionary gatherings. Her creation- Old Glory, has remained the template for the American flag ever since.
In possibly the shortest, clearest resolution ever to make it's way through Congress, our flag was adopted. Today, June 14th, we celebrate Old Glory. Happy Flag Day!
"Resolved, That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation"
