I’ve often flippantly remarked that the US is the direct successor to the British East India Company, citing that the country’s flag and that of the BEIC are almost identical.
Well, this video, which tells a marvelous tale of another American flag, also takes the link between the BEIC and the US seriously.
I’m not touting this as truth, but rather as something of interest.
Still, check out the other US flag cited in the video: “The Banner of the Republic.”
And enjoy parts of the musical score from The Last of the Mohicans, which serves as the video’s soundtrack.
