The Hulbert Flag
The story begins in July, 1775 when John Hulbert, a cordwainer and magistrate, became captain of a company of Long Island minutemen. Two months later Hulbert's company moved to Ticonderoga to assist in the campaign to liberate the Champlain Valley. In November, the Long Islanders escorted a group of British prisoners to Trenton and Hulbert reported to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. After a short term of duty at Fort Constitution (Lee) on the Hudson, the company returned to their homes for discharge on January 18, 1776.
Exactly 150 years later, in 1926, a tattered old flag was found in a house once occupied by John Hulbert.
Many flag historians say that he brought the flag with him and that Francis Hopkinson, a delegate from New Jersey, may have been asked to make a sketch of it. This sketch supposedly formed the basis of the later Flag Resolution. And the Hulbert Flag may well be the Inspiration for the very 1st American Flag! Neat!

We are currently in the DC area and attended the Sailabration yesterday in Baltimore harbor which celebrates the 200th anniversary of the writing of the Star Spangled Banner, our national anthem. The particular flag that Francis Scott Key saw flying over Ft. McHenry had 15 stars and 15 stripes (by the war of 1812 two states had been added - Vermont and Kentucky) and is on display at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. As part of the Sailabration, there are tall ships in the harbor from all over the world and quite a few gray hulls as well. It was quite a sight and I would recommend anyone in the area to make the effort to attend some part of this which goes through this weekend.
