2013 Flag Day Parade

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Thousands came out to watch Dedham’s Annual Flag Day Parade, a tradition in the town celebrating the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.[1] The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.
