Story:
The Gadsden Flag. About In the fall of 1775, just a few months after the start of the American Revolutionary War, General George Washington established the United States Navy. The original seven ships were often referred to Washington Cruisers and were used to intercept British ships carrying war supplies to the British troops. One ship carrying 30,000 pairs of shoes was captured by Captain John Manley, but Manley refused to release the cargo until after he had been paid his 2.5% commission, forcing many soldiers in Washington's army to march barefoot in the snow. To help resolve the situation, the Second Continental Congress authorized 5 companies of Marines to accompany the Navy on their first mission. Christopher Gadsden was one of seven Marine committee members who were outfitting for the first naval mission. Before the departure of that mission in December 1775, the newly appointed commander-in-chief of the Navy, Commodore Esek Hopkins, received the yellow rattlesnake flag from Gadsden to serve as the distinctive personal standard of his flagship. It was displayed at the mainmast. Outside Design A yellow background with a black coiled rattlesnake ready to strike. Inside Design Yellow with black 'Don't Tread On Me' typography with grass slightly covering the text.
