History of The Bennington Flag

The Bennington flag is believed by many authorities to be the first Stars and Stripes used by American land troops. The Bennington Flag was presented to Colonel Stark's Army by Nathaniel Fillmore, the father of the future President. It was made of homespun linen and hand sewn. The original flag is preserved in the Bennington Vermont Museum.
