2011--Emails To Capitol Hill-2011
concerning
150th Anniversary
The First Public Flag Day Celebration

Hartford, CT
June 14, 1861

Dear Friends,

This year marks,
"The 150th Anniversary"
of
"The Civil War"
as well as..



"The First Public Flag Day & Constitution Day Celebrations"
in
Hartford, CT
which is
"Directly Tied"
to
"The Events"
of
April 12, 1861.

However,
"For Some Reason"
these..



"Historic Chapters In American History"
have been
"Lost to The Ages!!"

"That Being The Case"
and
"Since It's Been Over 40 Years"
since
"The Last Public Flag Day Celebration"
at..



"The Capitol"
it seems
"Altogether Fitting"
that we
"Take This Opportunity"
to
"Re-Discover"
this
"Important Chapter In American History"
and..



"Re-Establish The Tradition"
with..



"A Special Flag Day Celebration"



"Similar"
to..



The 1929 Flag Day Vesper Service
"Honoring"



Jonathan Morris
"Originator"
of
"The Idea"
and..



"All Those"
who have helped
"Continue"
"The Tradition!!"

Accordingly,

"Have Made Contact"
with
"Key Staff Members"
representing
Vice-President Biden
Senator Lieberman
Speaker Boehner
and
Congressman Larson
suggesting
"Official Recognition"
and
"Sponsorship"
of
"A Special Flag Day Service"
at
"The Capitol"
since they are
"The Principles!"

"That Being The Case"
sent
"A Series Of  Four Emails"
which
"Cover All The Bases"
and
"Follow Below!!"

They are
"Essentially"
"The Same As Was Sent"
with
"Minor Edits"
and
"A Few Updates"
making them
"Even More"
"'Informative!!"

Accordingly,
"All I Can Do"
is
"Put The Ball On The Field!!"

But..
"Given This Vast Quantity Of Historic Information"
"It Is My Hope"
"Those In A Position To Make A Difference"
will
"Seize"
"The Opportunity"
and
"Run With The Ball!"

Until then..

Warmest Regards,



Craig Harmon, Director
