An unusual Flag with an oft-heard history, it flew originally in 1777 during The American Revolutionary War over Ft. Miffin (Delaware River). Designed to stop British Naval harassment, it was said that Ft. Miffin went through a 5-day Siege by British Warships which fired no less than 10,000 rounds into the Fort! Just why the “Color scheme” was chosen is now lost to History. The “Miffin Colors” were shot down twice (and raised both times – resulting in the death of the men who tried). Ft. Miffin did fall eventually. The Flag consists of 13-Stripes alternating in Red, White and Blue.
