The American flag through the ages...

I have my flag flying today.

I usually have my flag flying, except in really bad weather.

Today flags are flying all over the United States in memory of those who have fought to keep our precious right to be free.

The American flag through the ages...

Grand Union flag, 1775

The flag Betsy Ross designed, 1776

The 13 star flag, adopted 14 Jun 1777

The 15 star flag, 1795

The 35 star Civil War flag
Southern states may have seceded from the Union, but Lincoln didn't take their stars off the flag...


Old Glory, as she flies today...
