The First American Flag: Revisiting the Grand Union at Prospect Hill (a Book by Byron DeLear)

"The First American Flag" book cover"The First American Flag" book cover

$19.99

“The mystery of the first American flag's origins has flummoxed historians for nearly two centuries. Author Byron DeLear pieces together its fascinating tale at the beginnings of the American Revolution. The First American Flag explores this important national icon and how the introduction of this galvanizing symbol occurred at a time when the trappings of American nationhood were taking shape -- in less than a month's time, a new navy, a new army, a new flag, and a new name for a nation came into being.”

"The Commonwealth of Massachusetts played a significant role in the shaping of our nation, but the lesser known story is the role played by the City of Somerville. Byron has perfectly captured the significance of Somerville's contribution to the nation's first flag atop our Prospect Hill." -- Mayor Joseph Curtatone, Somerville, MA
