Spirit of '76 painting in Marblehead, Massachusetts, with the "Spirit of George Washington"

Marblehead is a lovely town and the "City Hall" is a most interesting "museum". If you get as far North as Boston, go the extra mile (or quite a few miles) to visit the Birthplace of the American Navy were the first of the Washington Cruisers were Commissioned by Commander in Chief George Washington.

The 7 Washington Cruisers flew a flag much like the reconstructed Liberty Tree Flag, or Washington Cruisers Flag, which was the TRUE "First Navy Flag", NOT the "fake snake" flag that now flies on the bow of American Navy ships due to misinformed quasi-historians in the Secretary of the Navy's office back during the Bicentennial in the mid-1970s.
