Head over to Fort Delaware Museum of Colonial History this Saturday, June 22, for an incredible display of early American flags!
In addition to all the other fascinating attractions at the Fort, visitors can take in a full exhibit of flags flown over the Thirteen Colonies and the infant United States. The creation and meaning of Flag Day will be discussed, as well as the significance each flag played in the formation of the United States.
Flags we will include the British Red Ensign, The Bennington Flag, The Green Mountain Boys Flag, The Grand Union, The Betsy Ross Flag, The Bedford Flag, Washington Cruisers, Philadelphia Light Horse Flag, The Gadsen Flag, and The Guilford Courthouse Flag. They will become part of a permanent display at the Fort.
Located along Route 97, the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway, in Narrowsburg, Fort Delaware is an authentic depiction of the life of the Delaware Company Pioneers who settled in the Upper Delaware Valley in 1754.
