Still True — More than Two Centuries Later

Flagpole repaired–Finally!  My 16′ ladder wouldn’t make it to the top, so thanks to neighbor Wally for the extra reach to replace the broken pulley and re-string it up.

War of 1812 Flag Replay*

June 18, 1812 – War of 1812 Began

On June 1, 1812, President James Madison sent a message to Congress recounting American grievances against Great Britain, though not specifically calling for a declaration of war. After Madison’s message, the House of Representatives deliberated for four days behind closed doors before voting 79 to 49 (61% in favor) the first declaration of war, and the Senate agreed by 19 to 13 (59% in favor). The conflict began formally on June 18, 1812, when Madison signed the measure into law and proclaimed it the next day.  This was the first time that the United States had declared war on another nation, and the Congressional vote would prove to be the closest vote to formally declare war in American history.
