On #ThisDayinHistory 1777, the American flag is flown in battle for the first time, during a Revolutionary W ar skirmish at Cooch’s Bridge, Maryland #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Sept.04: Three months before, on June 14, the Continental Congress adopted a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white” and that “the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.” The national flag, which became known as the “Stars and Stripes,” was based on the “Grand Union” flag, a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776 that also consisted of 13 red and white stripes.

According to a legend, Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross designed the new canton for the Stars and Stripes, which consisted of a circle of 13 stars and a blue background, at the request of General George Washington……… Historians have been unable to conclusively prove or disprove this legend…… On June 14, 1877, the first Flag Day observance was held on the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes…….. In the years after the first Flag Day, several states continued to observe the anniversary, and in 1949 Congress officially designated June 14 as Flag Day, a national day of observance. #USHistory#FlagDay#Revolutionary War #AceHistoryNews

#OnThisDayinHistory Happy #LaborDay! Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers Created by the labor movement in the late 19th century,it became a federal holiday in 1894 #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Sept.04: At the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks in order to eke out a basic living #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6965 Despite restrictions, in some states children as young as 5 or 6 toiled in mills, factories and mines across the country, earning a fraction of their adult counterparts’ wages….. People of all ages, particularly the very poor and recent immigrants, often faced extremely unsafe working conditions, with insufficient access to fresh air, sanitary facilities and breaks….As manufacturing increasingly supplanted agriculture as the wellspring of American employment, labor unions, which had first appeared in the late 18th century, grew more prominent and vocal…….. They began organizing strikes and rallies to protest poor conditions and compel employers to renegotiate hours and pay…… On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history…..These were children who worked the busy sidewalks in an effort to sell news papers….. It looks like ja few of them also found some apparent joy in a smoke after a long day of work.
