Flag Day History
Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It marks the day we adopted the flag of the United States. The Second Continental Congress brought it to resolution in 1777.
Furthermore, Flag Day becomes even more moving when you find out it’s also the day The United States Army also celebrates the U.S. Army Birthdays. Notice, this happened two years, before Flag Day became. In 1775, the consensus position was reached by Congress in the Committee of the Whole. Such a display of our brave country’s desire to grow and prosper!
Let’s recall, it was 1946 when an Act of Congress established National Flag Day. Also, the proclamation that officially established Flag Day on June 14, was issued by none other than President Woodrow Wilson back in 1916. Weeeewwww….long time ago!
So, did you know there is someone considered the “Godfather of Flag Day?” Yes, there is! In Washington, DC, Clyde Thomson is such person! Slow smoked meats and veggies are a tradition around there.
