John Paul Jones And His Flag
Posted On: 2009-07-30

LEADER: A great deal of interesting history is connected with the navel career of John Paul Jones, who can aptly be called the most daring sea-rover in the annuals of the American Navy. His devotion to the Flag under which he so valiantly fought, is as unquestionable as his fearlessness.

CUB #1: He is credited with being the first to hoist the Flag on an American Man-of- War.

CUB #2: He was the first to show it upon the seas.

CUB #3: He was the first to receive and acknowledge a salute to it from a foreign power.

CUB #4: He was the first to fight a naval battle under.

CUB #5: He was the first to decorate with it a Man-of War of the enemy taken as a prize in action.

CUB #6: The name of no other man is so closely and interestingly associated with American Flag as that of John Paul Jones.
