Colors flown by the original colonies

If there is one thing that can make any heart swell, it is watching the colors of their home hoisted high into the sky. There is something magical about the first moment when the wind catches the flag and unfurls it for all to see that stirs a person deep down at the heart of who they are.

Although there were only thirteen colonies at the time of the Revolutionary War, there were plenty of banners to chose from during this turbulent period. Each colony could be represented by any number of flags due in part to the various regiments that called the colony home. A cross section of these colonial colors are on display inside The American Adventure’s Liberty Inn. Take a moment to step back in time and visit with the flags that swelled the hearts of those who brought us the freedoms we enjoy today.
