Eagle Ridge Academy welcomes guest speaker Dick Middleton for his History of the American Flag presentation in the Eagle Ridge Academy forum on Friday, November 10, 6:30-7:00 p.m. A veteran’s roundtable will follow, featuring community speakers.
The Patriotic Journeys flag presentation has on display thirteen rare and unique flags, representing 242 years of American flag history, including the Revolutionary War, Civil War and modern-day flags. We will learn about the intriguing, often little-known details about the evolution of the American flag, design, canton and field element descriptions; background stories; origin of our national anthem; summary of rare locations where the flag has been flown; and a tribute to veterans.
Dick Middleton received his Distinguished Military Graduate officer commission in the United States Army and was selected to be an instructor at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York. He is a member and chaplain of American Legion Post #580 in Chanhassen and a member of the Fort Snelling Rifle Squad.
