On the flag of the United States...
Item # 630013
May 1, 1818
NEW YORK SPECTATOR, May 1, 1818
* United States Flag revision
The back page has over 2 columns taken up with a very lengthy list of Acts of Congress which were recently passed. Included very inconspicuously within the list is: "To establish the flag of the United States--House, April 4, 1818." (text of the Act not included: see) This was the historic Act which formalized how the flag would be altered in future as additional states join the Union.
Four pages, nice condition.
