Today's Flags at Rosehill

Today we are flying with the flag of Tennessee, the flag of the Commonwealth of Virginia, where, on December 4, 1619, settlers stepped ashore at Berkeley Hundred along the James River and, in accordance with the proprietor's instruction that "the day of our ship's arrival ... shall be yearly and perpetually kept as a day of thanksgiving," celebrated the first official Thanksgiving Day in the English colonies.

As you can see the the way the flagpole is bending, it is a gloriously windy day--a great day for flag flying.

We are also flying the Thanksgiving Flags mentioned in yesterday's post.
