3x5 ft Culpeper Minutemen Premium Nylon Flag - Annin Co.
The Culpeper minutemen fought alongside the American patriots during first year of the American Revolution, and are remembered for their company flag. The flag was a white banner showcasing a rattlesnake, featuring the phrases "Liberty or Death" and "Don't Tread on Me".
In October 1775, the minutemen were sent to Hampton in response to the British naval ships attempting to land there. The riflemen were able to effectively shoot the men manning the ships, cannons, and the fleet eventually sailed away.
They next fought in the Battle of Great Bridge in December 1775. The battle was a total American victory. There were accounts of the battle that suggested the British were unnerved by the reputation of the frontiersmen.
