ORIGIN AND PROGRESS

OF THE

Flag of the Writed States of America,

WITH AN INTRODUCTORY ACCOUNT

OF THE

SYMBOLS, STANDARDS, BANNERS AND FLAGS

OF ANCIENT AND MODERN NATIONS,

BY

GEO. HENRY PREBLE, U. S. N.

“When the standard of the Union is raised and waves over my head - the stand-

ashington planted on the ramparts of the Constitution, God forbid that
I should enquire whom the people have commissioned to unfurl it, and bear it up; I
only ask in what manner, as an humble individual, I can best discharge my duty in
defending it." - DANIEL WEBSTER.

“There is but one other emblem so significant as a flag, viz: the cross."
