Re: [Revlist] This Day in 1777
- When I lived in Pennsylvania Warren Williams at the Moland House along
Neshaminy Creek always claimed the flag first flew there--and then I moved to
Delaware and Ned Cooch always claimed it flew here--two very nice old men
clinging to their most cherished beliefs!
Who knows--maybe she made two--although before I met Warren & Ned, I
thought the first flag was for a ship!
In a message dated 9/4/2012 7:25:24 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
The American flag is flown in battle for the first time during a
Revolutionary War skirmish
