L. F. Rbctob, Ticket Agent 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 union. 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 ty feet in width by thirty-six feet in length, the forty-five white stars which formed the union showing dis tinctly against the bright blue of the field.
