The 15 Star Flag and The Star Spangled Banner

 

 

This Flag became the Official United States Flag on May 1st,1795. Two stars were added for the admission of Vermont (the 14th State on March 4th, 1791) and Kentucky (the 15th State on June 1st, 1792, and was to last for 23 years. The five Presidents who served under this flag were:

 

       George Washington (1789-1797)       John Adams (1797-1801)        Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809)       

James Madison (1809-1817)        James Monroe (1817-1825)

 

The 15-star, 15-stripe flag was authorized by the Flag Act of January 13, 1794, adding 2 stripes and 2 Stars. The regulation went into effect on May 1, 1795. This flag was the only U.S. Flag to have more than 13 stripes. It was immortalized by Francis Scott Key during the bombardment of Fort McHenry, Sept 13, 1814. This flag is representative of the actual flag that flew over Fort McHenry on that day and which is now preserved in the Smithsonian Museum. You can notice the "tilt" in some of the stars just as in the original Star Spangled Banner.

 


 

 

Betsy Ross Flag

  

18 x 10 - $100.00

24 x 14 - $179.00

36 x 21 - $279.00 

 
 

 

In May of 1776, the Congressional Committee called upon Betsy Ross at her shop. She finished the flag either in late May or early June 1776. In July, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud for the first time at Independence Hall. Amid celebration, bells throughout the city tolled, heralding the birth of a new nation.

Much suffering and loss of life would result, however, before the United States would completely sever ties with Britain. Betsy Ross herself lost two husbands to the Revolutionary War. During the conflict the British appropriated her house to lodge soldiers. Through it all she managed to run her own upholstery business (which she continued operating for several decades after the war) and after the soldiers left, she wove cloth pouches which were used to hold gunpowder for the Continentals.

On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress, seeking to promote national pride and unity, adopted the national flag. "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."

 

 


Bennington Flag

  

18 x 10 - $100.00

24 x 14 - $179.00

36 x 21 - $279.00 

 

 

The Bennington flag is a version of the American Flag associated with the American Revolution Battle of Bennington from which it derives its name . Like many Revolution era flags, the Bennington features 13 stars and 13 stripes, symbolic of the 13 American colonies that were in a state of rebellion against Great Britain. The Bennington version is easily identified by a large '76' in the canton, recalling the year 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed. Another distinctive feature of the Bennington flag is the arrangement of the 13 stripes, with white being outermost (rather than red being outermost as in the current flag). Also, its stars have seven points each (instead of the current five) and the blue canton is taller than on other flags, spanning nine instead of seven of the thirteen stripes.

The first official national flag of the Confederacy, often called the "Stars and Bars", was flown from March 4, 1861 to May 1, 1863. It was designed by German / Prussian artist Nicola Marschall in Marion, Alabame and resembles the Flag of the Austrian Empire, (later Austria - Hungary), today's remnant Republic of Austria, with which Marschall would have been familiar.The "Stars and Bars" flag was adopted March 4, 1861, in the first temporary national capital of Montgomery, Alabama and raised over the dome of that first Confederate capitol.
