Dear Friends,
 
Well..
 
"As You Might Imagine"
 
 
"I Was Hooked!!"
 
I mean..
 
 
"When Was The Last Time"
"That Happened!!"
 
So..
 
"Investigated"
"Further"
and
"Turns Out"
"The 1916 Celebration"
was
"To My Way Of Thinking"
"The Greatest Flag Day"
in
"American History"
because
"Not Only"
did
President Wilson
"Lead The Parade"
but..
 
 
"He Reviewed The Parade"
before
"Giving"
 
 
 
"The Flag Day Speech"
at..
 
 
"The Washington Monument"
(Sylvan Theater)
with..
 
 
"The Stars & Stripes Flying"
 
 
"High Over Head!!"
(Boy Wouldn't That Be Cool To Do Again)
 
And..
 
As if,
"That Weren't Enough"
there was..
 
 
"The Nationwide"
Lincoln Highway Celebration
and..
 
 
"The First"
 
 
"Presidential"
"Flag Day Proclamation!!"
 
Well..
 
Like I said,
"I Was Hooked"
and
"Thought It Was Important"
to
"Get The Word Out"
concerning
"This Significant Chapter In American History!!"
 
That being the case,
"Put Together"
"The Greatest Flag Day"
in
"American History"
Web Page
http://www.lincoln-highway-museum.org/FlagDay1916/FlagDay-1916-Index.html
 
Then..
 
Contacted,
"All 50 Governors"
seeking..
 
 
"Special"
 

90th Anniversary
"Flag Day Proclamations"
and 
"Organized"
 
 
"A Nationwide Celebration"
on..
 
 
The Lincoln Highway.
 
Accordingly,
"That Was Followed By"
The 230th Anniversary
in
"2007"
and
"A New Web Page"
http://www.lincoln-highway-museum.org/PFDP/FD230-Index.html
detailing
"The History Of Flag Day"
including
"The Presidential Flag Day Files"
and
"Legislative History"
 
In addition,
"The 1916 Events"
prompted
"Further Investigation"
into
"Presidential"
"Flag Day Activities"
and
"Turns Out"
shortly after..
 
 
"The 1913 Flag Day Celebration"
at
The State Department
 
 
William Jennings Bryan
invited..
 
 
President Wilson
to
"Speak"
at..
 
 
"The 1914 Event"
which
"Established"
"The Tradition"
of..


"Presidential"
"Flag Day Speeches"
during
"The Wilson Years!!"
 
Accordingly,
"In 1915"
 
 
"The Ceremony"
was at..
 
 
"The Treasury Department"
which
"Prompted"
 
 
"The Inter-Departmental Celebration"
in
1916
since
"Everyone"
wanted
"The President"
for
"The Various"
"Departmental Celebrations"
i.e.
 
 
"Post Office"
and..
 
 
"Interior"
(Vice President Marshall)
where..
 
 
Franklin Lane
made..
 
 
"His Famous Flag Day Speech!!"
 
In 1917
President Wilson
used
"The Flag Day Speech"
to...
 
 
"Address"
"The German Situation"
but..
 
 
"A Huge Storm"
sent
"40,000 Running For Cover"
as
The President
"Continued"
"Anyway"
in..
 
 
"The Pouring Rain!!"
 
In 1918..
 
 
"He Took A Break"
as..
 
 
"A Huge Crowd"
"Listened"
to
The Solicitor General
and
Secretary of War
Newton Baker.
 
In 1919..
 
 
"The Vice President"
 
 
"Took Over"
at
"The Sylvan Theater"
since
President Wilson
was
"Still In Europe!!"
 
Then..
 
"In 1920"
 
 
"The Elks Took Over"
at
The Sylvan Theater
and
"The GAR"
held..
 
 
"A Huge"
"Flag Day Celebration"
for
"The First Time"
on
"The Steps Of the Capitol"
since
President Wilson
was..
 
 
"Still Recuperating!!"
 
Accordingly,
based on..
 
 
"The Architect of the Capitol"
"Flag Day Files"
for
"The Next"
"52 Years"
from..
 
 
1920
to.
 
 
"1972"
The GAR
and
The Women's Relief Corp
held..
 
 
"Annual Flag Day Ceremonies"
on..
 
 
"The Steps"
of..


"The Capitol!!"

That being the case,
since it's been
"Almost 40 Years"
think
"It's About Time"
to..
 

 
"Re-Establish"
"The Tradition"
and
"What Better Time"
than
The 150th Anniversary
of..
 
 
"The Civil War"
and..
 
 
 
 
"The First Public Flag Day Celebration!!"
 
Accordingly,
"Will Write One More Email"
detailing
"The Possibilities"
for
"Tomorrow!!"
 
Until then..
 
Warmest Regards,
