Connecticut Landmarks’ Nathan Hale Homestead is honoring heroes this July with the 3rd annual Flag Field for Heroes presented in partnership with the Coventry Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Coventry American Legion! Purchase an American Flag in honor of a military service member, veteran or hero. The Flag Field for Heroes will be on display from Saturday, July 4th through Friday, July 24th with an Opening Ceremony on Saturday, July 4th at 10 am.
Each flag includes a tag with the hero’s name, rank, and time served (if available). The hero’s name will also be added to a binder listing the flag row and column to help you find your hero’s flag in our Flag Field. At the Opening Ceremony, enjoy a dramatic presentation of the Declaration of Independence by Museum Interpreters on the front steps of the Homestead, a poem about Connecticut’s State Hero Nathan Hale, and patriotic fife music in honor of Independence Day. Cost is $10 per flag; the Opening Ceremony is free. For more information and to purchase a flag, contact 860.742.6917 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
