Today is Flag Day. Fly 'em high. 🇺🇸

June 14, 2017

Did you know that flag day may have been originated right here in Wisconsin in 1885? Shocking right! A school teacher in Fredonia, WI arranged for the pupils at the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School to observe the 14th of June as 'Flag Birthday'. After several decades of people advocating to make the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 a holiday, President Truman signed an act of congress on August 3rd, 1949 designating June 14th as National Flag Day. Woooohooo!

How's that for a fun fact of the day?
