Did You Know? The American flag was flown in battle for the first time on this day in 1777, during an Revolutionary War skirmish at Cooch's Bridge, Delaware. It's true, according to history.com which says Patriot General William Maxwell ordered the "Stars and Stripes" banner raised as a detachment of his infantry and cavalry met an advance guard of British and Hessian troops. The rebels were defeated and forced to retreat to Brandywine Creek in Pennsylvania, where they joined General George Washington's main force.
