    Commemorating the Sesquicentennial (150th Anniversary) of the Start of the American Civil War (April 12th, 1861-2011) by flying four Flags: From-Left-To-Right, The 50-Star United States Flag, the 33-Star "Fort Sumter" U.S. Flag, the 13-Star Confederate States of America "Battle" Flag, and the State of Oregon Flag.

    Although the "Fort Sumter" Flag is not the exact "configuration" that I wanted, it IS a high quality American Made Flag. I'd have preferred the 25-Star "diamond" with the top two and bottom two stars on each side "split" away from the single end stars. Also, I would have preferred flying a copy of the CSA's "1st National" Flag" but was unable to secure a decent one in time. ALAS!

    I also posted almost 100 american flags all over Springfield,Oregon this morning. going to try to catch a quick catnap before I have to go back out and pick them all up again!
