WeRelate:Contest summary

JUNE

240 years ago this month, on June 14, 1777, “Old Glory” was adopted by the Continental Congress to replace the British-inspired Grand Union flag as the flag of the newly independent United States. Philadelphia seamstress, Betsy Ross, has been credited with making the first flag. In June 1886, Chicago dentist, Bernard Cigrand, proposed an annual observance of the birth of the flag. Many consider him the "Father of Flag Day" because of his tireless 30-year advocacy.
