The history of Flag Day is not forgotten in the Upstate

    Today is Flag Day.  It is our annual remembrance of how the American Flag was adopted and an observance of how we have grown as a great nation.

    According to history.com, “On this day in 1777…the Continental Congress adopts a resolution stating that ‘the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white’ and that ‘the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.'”  It was based on the Grand Union flag, which represented the Continental Army.

    Our local area has historical links to that time, as well.  Anderson, Oconee and Pickens Counties all have history dating back to the time around the Revolutionary War.  Those that love to read about American History and how our country came into existence will love to visit several parts of our area and learn about it first-hand.

    It is interesting to know how this area was developed into the land that exists today.
