(The third Flag Act, passed on April 4, 1818, reduced the number of stripes back to thirteen to honor the original thirteen colonies and provided for one star for each state — a new star to be added to the flag on the Fourth of July following the admission of each new state.)

As the only militia flag present at the battles according to tradition, the flag is the likely inspiration for the opening lines of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord Hymn

Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
