Brandon of PA proudly displays Gen. Washington's Flag
When I was in DC, I saw this flag flying and had to get a picture because I had never seen it before. I asked the gentleman who was proudly displaying the flag the history and this is what he had to say:
The flag that I carried today is a replica (of course) of what is said to be Gen. George Washington's personal flag. This flag went with him wherever he went. There is another one on display at Mt. Vernon. The flag measures 27 1/2" X 35 1/2" with 13 6-pointed stars alternating 3,2,3,2,3. This would have been with Gen. Washington and his army that was to the north while he waited for the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
I carried this flag today because this flag was the first flown at the start of the revolution in 1775. This man was willing to give his life blood for freedom and I felt that he should be there in spirit today. My family and I are sick to death of the corruption and far left socialism. We are far from giving up this fight and willing to voice our opinions every day if that's what it's going to take.
