L. F. Rbctob,
AKhoagh the resolution by which
th flag became n national standard
was not otsclally promulgated by the
secretary of congress until Sept 3,
1777. it aeema well authenticated that
th ragttlatkm stars and stripes was
carried at th battle of Braadywlne.
fonght Spt 11. 1777. This shows that
th contract entered Into by Betsy
Roe must have been carried out with
great expedition, and that the flags
had been distributed among the line
regiments of the levotattoaary army
early in September. The flag flrst dis
played hi battle at Brandywice Creek
had thirteen stripes, alternate red and
white, and as a union thirteen white
stars wero displayed on a blue field.
The flag 'Which vas carried by the
men In blue and bug during the bat
tles of the revolution remained un
changed until the flrst day of May,
1795, when, by a previous act of con
cress, two additional stripes were
added to the body of the standard and
two star to the union. These addi
tions were made to represent the
states of Vermont and Kentucky,
which had just been admitted to the
federal union. As no further change
was man in the national flag until
1818, it follows that the regimental
colors carried during the war of 1812
wer of this design. Thus the Amer
ican flags surrendered by General
Hull at Detroit, and those captured
b the British at Bladensburg and
Washington must all have displayed
fifteen alternate red and white stripes,
as well as the fifteen stars in the
In 1818, by an act of congress, the
stripes of the national flag were again
reduced to thirteen, and it was de
clared that the addition of a star to
th union shc:Ud thence-forward repre
sent each now state. A- newspaper
of the time, still kept in the govern'
ment archives, said: "By this regu
lation the thirteen stripes will repre
sent the number of states whose valor
and resources originally effected
American independence, and addition
al stars will mark the increase of
the states since the present constitution.-
From this time on the increase
of stars hi the constellation which
formed the union was steady, and dur
ing the war with Mexico, in 1846,
twenty-nine white stars were dis
played in the blue field.
The flags borne oy the regiments of
the northern army during, the four
years of the great civil war had thirty-five
stars in the union. This was
tfie full number of states then form
ing the national federation, as the
United States government had re
fused to recognize the constitutional
right of a state to secede from the
union. The retention of the stars
representing the southern states was
regarded ts a serious breach of mil
itary etiquette by the more punctilious
of the confederate leaders, and the
capture of one of the federal stand
ards was always well rewarded by the
authorities ac Richmond.
The regimental flags carried by the
regular and volunteer regiments dur
ing the Spanish war of 1898 displayed
forty-five stars hi the blue field of the
union, ten new states having been
added to the federation since the
great civil struggle which so nearly
severed :-be republic. This was also
the uVst foreign war In which the
state troops of the reualted country
appeared in the field together, and it
was the first occasion on which for
mer confederate officers of high rank
resumed the uniform of the United
States service. The great garrison
flag which was hoisted over Santiago
after the surrender of the city by the
Spanish commandant measured twen

length, the forty-five white stars
