By special Act of Congress, the Betsy Ross flag is flown here 24 hours each day. This is to commemorate Washington's Army having encamped in this area June 14, 1777, the day Congress adopted the Flag Resolution. The period of encampment extended from June 14 to July 2, permitting sufficient time for an official flag to have been brought from Philadelphia to be flown at Middlebrook.
