This Day in History: June 14th

Don't Have a Flag for Flag Day? Rothco's Got You Covered
June 14th holds historical significance in the United States for two reasons; today marks Flag Day, a commemoration of the adoption of the U.S. Flag, as well as the birthday of the U.S. Army. President Woodrow Wilson instituted Flag Day in 1916 to celebrate the United States flag the Continental Congress adopted in 1777. June 14th must have been a good day to make important decisions, as two years earlier the Continental Congress founded the American Continental Army. So here are a few things you might not have known about United States Army’s birthday and Flag Day:
  • Pennsylvania was the first state to celebrate Flag Day.
  • Flag Day actually marks the beginning of a 21 day period called “Honor America Days” ending on the 4th of July.
  • While June 14th was proclaimed Flag Day, it is not a national holiday but is treated as a holiday in certain areas of the United States.
  • The United States Army wasn’t called the “United States Army” until 1796; it was previously called the Continental Army, the Regular Army, and the Legion of the United States.
  • Originally, the Continental Congress authorized just 10 companies of riflemen.
  • The Congress had wished for secrecy when forming the American Continental Army and so there are very few journal entries from the Continental Congress that day.
