PHILADELPHIA | Washington’s battlefield flag on view at revolution museum
PHILADELPHIA — George Washington’s personal Revolutionary War headquarters flag is going on display at Philadelphia’s Museum of the American Revolution, just in time for Flag Day.
The faded and fragile blue silk flag marked Washington’s presence on the battlefield during the war. Its appearance at the museum is the flag’s first public display in Philadelphia since the war.
The museum is bringing the flag, known as the Commander-in-Chief’s Standard, out of its archives for public viewing on Thursday until Sunday.
