- Today's Flag: Guilford Courthouse 1781 (abr) In summary, this flag supposedly flew over the Guilford Courthouse in North Carolina when General Nathanial Greene faced the brunt of Cornwallis’ army on March 15, 1781. It was one of the bloodiest battles of the war with the British losing over 25% of their troops. Although Cornwallis was technically the victor in this engagement, he had lost too many assets in this and other related battles in the Carolinas and retreated to Wilmington for supplies and then on to meet his destiny at Yorktown, Virginia. Given that the flag’s reversed colors and star pattern is unusual; it could have been a misinterpretation of flag law, or a militia flag aimed at denoting a particular militia group. Hence it was not likely intended as a national flag. The flag exists and is preserved in the Hall of History in Raleigh, NC. “There is disagreement as to the age of the flag. The use of cotton for the blue stripes, the canton and the stars indicate to textile historians that it dates to the early Nineteenth Century. Also, at the bottom of the hoist edge are the stubs of two additional stripes of the same material and stitchings as the full stripes; the placement of the stubs indicates that the flag had at least fourteen stripes, and probably fifteen originally. Further, there is the strong possibility that two additional stars had been originally present on the cut-off side of the canton for a balanced design of fifteen stars.” [Standards and Colors of the American Revolution] #flags #historiccharleston #charleston #flag #vexillology
