The Union Jack Flag is Coming Across the Border

The Union Jack flag is coming across the border to be hung proudly in Sackets Harbor as a reminder of the battles of the War of 1812.
Sheila Cornett, a member of the Limestone Quilters’ Guild, is driving over with the quilts.

This historic British Union Jack flag won’t be at the head of a marching army, but it will be part of a display of Canadian quilts that will be part of the commemorative Quilt Show to mark the bicentennial of the conflict and the ensuing 200 years of peace between the United States, Canada and Great Britain.
