The American flag has been around for more than 1,000 years, but how did it first get its distinctive look?
From the Revolutionary War through the Civil War, the American Civil War and beyond, we take a look at 10 things that we don’t know about its history.1.
It was first flown as a protest symbol in 1789 in Philadelphia by a group of protesters who called themselves the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Two years later, the flag was flown at a ceremony marking the anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and its popularity grew.
As the flag grew, so did its popularity, and by the time it reached the White House in 1804, it was being used on both sides of the battle lines by both sides.2.
The original flag was originally a three-sided banner of the American Revolutionary and Union armies.
The design was modified to fit the Union side, which included a red “R” and a blue “X” representing a “V.”3.
As a symbol of freedom, the Confederate flag was initially a design of a star and cross on a red background, but after the Civil Wars, the design evolved into a red-white-and-blue striped flag with an eagle, shield and stars.
The flag was officially adopted by the Confederate States of America in 1861, but was not formally adopted by other states until it was officially used by the United States as a flag in March 1865.4.
As early as 1803, the Union was pushing to adopt a red, white and blue flag for its battle flags.
It took about three years, however, for the flag to become officially adopted as the official flag of the Confederacy.5.
In the 1850s, a group called the Liberty League was formed, which was led by a former Union general, George McPherson.
The group wanted to keep the flag as it was.
The first flag they produced was a flag featuring a red star with a blue stripe.
They later renamed it the Confederate Stars and Bars.
In 1862, they began using the red star and stripes in their flag, and the flag became officially adopted in 1863.6.
The Battle of Bull Run, which raged in 1862, saw Union forces defeat Confederate forces and captured the city of Gettysburg.
The Union flag was adopted in the city’s downtown by a military commander named Major General William H. “Stonewall” Jackson, who called it the “Star-Spangled Banner.”7.
In 1864, Confederate forces took control of the capital of North Carolina, Wilmington, and put the flag in the Statehouse.
It became known as the “Stars and Bars.”8.
In 1890, the Confederacy signed the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared the end of slavery and the beginning of a new American Republic.
It also said that the Confederate battle flag would be removed from public buildings and would be used only as a symbol.9.
The battle flag became the official uniform of the Confederate Army, and was used throughout the Civil Rights Movement, and in the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The Civil War ended in 1865, but the flag continued to be used by many other branches of the military.10.
The United States began using a “red, white, and blue” flag in 1967.
