The History Of The American Flag

For more than 200 years, the American flag has been the symbol of our nation’s strength and unity. It’s been a source of pride and inspiration for millions of citizens. And the American Flag has been a prominent icon in our national history. Here are the highlights of its unique past.

On January 1, 1776, the Continental Army was reorganized in accordance with a Congressional resolution which placed American forces under George Washington’s control. On that New Year’s Day the Continental Army was laying siege to Boston which had been taken over by the British Army. Washington ordered the Grand Union flag hoisted above his base at Prospect Hill. It had 13 alternate red and white stripes and the British Union Jack in the upper left-hand corner (the canton).

In May of 1776, Betsy Ross reported that she sewed the first American flag.

On June 14, 1777, in order to establish an official flag for the new nation, the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act: “Resolved, That the flag of the United States be made of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.

Between 1777 and 1960, Congress passed several acts that changed the shape, design and arrangement of the flag and allowed for additional stars and stripes to be added to reflect the admission of each new state.

  • Act of January 13, 1794 – provided for 15 stripes and 15 stars after May 1795.
  • Act of April 4, 1818 – provided for 13 stripes and one star for each state, to be added to the flag on the 4th of July following the admission of each new state, signed by President Monroe.
  • Executive Order of President Taft dated June 24, 1912 – established proportions of the flag and provided for arrangement of the stars in six horizontal rows of eight each, a single point of each star to be upward.
  • Executive Order of President Eisenhower dated January 3, 1959 – provided for the arrangement of the stars in seven rows of seven stars each, staggered horizontally and vertically.
  • Executive Order of President Eisenhower dated August 21, 1959 – provided for the arrangement of the stars in nine rows of stars staggered horizontally and eleven rows of stars staggered vertically.


Today the flag consists of thirteen horizontal stripes, seven red alternating with 6 white. The stripes represent the original 13 colonies, the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well: Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor, White symbolizes Purity and Innocence and Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice.

If the Will of the People is Ignored, It’ll be Time to Go Egypt on Obama

(Here is the Transcript from Rush Limbaugh 2-14-11 Broadcast)

February 14, 2011

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

Salem, Oregon, this is Tim.  Thank you for waiting, sir.  Welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER:  Dittos, Rush.

RUSH:  Thank you.

CALLER:  If nothing changes as a result of the recent elections, and the Tea Party doesn’t get what they want, Rush, what happens next?

RUSH:  Then more Republicans get defeated in 2012.  And Obama, of course, loses, but more Republicans get defeated in 2012 as well.  This is something that, you know, let me put it to you in terms you can understand, all right?  Final comment of the day during the substantive programming content portion of the program.  After the election in November, repeal Obamacare, defund it all, doesn’t happen, number of other things that voters who sent all these freshmen to Washington to stop, arrest, cease and desist, if it doesn’t happen, we go Egypt on Obama.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  I tell you, folks, if it all bombs out, if all these promises — look, if the attempt is not even made to defund Obamacare, repeal it or whatever, then we go Egypt on Obama in the next election.  That’s what happens next.  And, by the way, Obama can’t complain if we go Egypt on him because he said that’s how democracy works, that’s what he said on Friday.  This is the way real democracy works, so he can’t complain if it happens to him, and it will.

END TRANSCRIPT

I Am An American!

I AM AN AMERICAN.
I BELIEVE IN GOD, FAMILY AND COUNTRY.
I DON’T HAVE MUCH TO GIVE, BUT I’LL SHARE WHAT I HAVE.
I HAVE BEEN BEATEN DOWN BY POLITICIANS, LIARS AND TRAITORS.
THEY HAVE TRIED TO ERASE MY IDENTITY AND MY PRIDE.
BUT I AM AN AMERICAN; I WILL SALUTE MY FLAG, RESPECT MY CONSTITUTION, AND HONOR MY OBLIGATIONS FOR THE RIGHT TO BE FREE.
I WILL BOW ONLY TO GOD, AND I WILL STAND IN TRUTH.
THEY CAN NEVER TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME.
