"At the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776, the United States had no official national flag. The Grand Union Flag has historically been referred to as the "First National Flag"; although it has never had any official status, it was used throughout the American Revolutionary War by George Washington and formed the basis for the design of the first official US flag." -Wikipedia

Wildwood - video taken with camera phone

Sorry, this is terrible sound quality (I took it with my phone)- Still, it is fun to see.


closing pins

Quite a few compliments from the audience at the Manor House. I received a request for "Under the Double Eagle," and told the gentleman we didn't have it in our folders, so I told him to come to the German American Festival and we'd play it there.
The wind added some excitement and it seems like we all got a lesson in the use of clothes pins.
