Flag Day Celebration 2019
Fort Negley Park
Fri, Jun 14 12:00 pm

In honor of Flag Day on Friday, June 14, 2019, VetLinx will hold a special presentation at 12:00 PM at Fort Negley Park. This year marks the 242nd anniversary of the adoption of the flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress. VetLinx will also celebrate the 244th U.S. Army Birthday on this day! During the secession crisis in 1861, Captain William Driver’s famed Old Glory, now preserved by the Smithsonian Institute, waved defiantly above his Nashville residence. Following the invasion of the city by Federal troops in February 1862, Old Glory briefly donned the Tennessee State Capitol.
