This is a DODSON FLAG. It is Sewn. It is NEW. The first Constitutional Convention met at Washington on the Brazos on March 1st, 1836. Most of the delegates were under 40 years old, and all had been elected for the express purpose of declaring the independence of Texas from Mexico and forming a government for the new republic. No one knew when they all might have to leave to fight the advancing Mexican army. On the opening day a "Norther" blew through and the temperature inside the meeting hall--a wooden building with scraps of cloth for windows and doors--was 33 degrees. Flying over the hall was the flag designed and made by Sarah Dodson. Recognized as the first "Lone Star" flag, she originally created it for her husband Archelaus, a member of the Robinson company of army volunteers formed in September, 1835, at Harrisburg, Texas. After serving at Gonzales, this company marched under the Dodson flag to San Antonio to lay seige to the Alamo. This Flag is made from 100% COTTON. It has a Cotton Canvas Header and Brass Grommets. The Flag Size is 3 Feet by 5 Feet. This Flag is BRAND NEW and NEVER USED. It is Excellent Quality and is Correct in All Details. Our Flags are COMPLETELY SEWN as were the Originals. We DO NOT Iron On, Stencil or Glue on Flag Components as some others do. Beware of Cheap Imitations claiming to be sewn. This is a Great Flag for Reenactors or any TEXAS History Buff. It makes a Great Gift.
