At the Varnum Memorial Armory Museum we have a hand-embroidered and fully restored militia flag for the United Train Of Artillery from Providence, RI. They were one of the early founding companies of the U.S. Artillery. Formed on April 22, 1775, they participated in the Siege of Boston, the Battle of Long Island, and the Battle of Rhode Island.
We are trying to determine this flag’s age. A Rhode Island Historical Society publication states that it’s circa 1775. Our research suggests early 1800s, though.
