Washington's Cruisers Flag

$48.00

This flag was used by George Washington on his squadron of six schooners which he outfitted at his own expense in the fall of 1775.

This flag was a variation of the New England Pine Tree flag. It was later modified and adopted by the Massachusetts Navy. The Sons of Liberty would rally under a large tree, in Boston Massachusetts, which came to be known as "The Liberty Tree".

This tree became a symbol of American independence. Knowing they were up against a great military power they believed they were sustained by still a greater power, thus their "APPEAL TO HEAVEN".
