The Culpepper Minute Men Flag

The Culpepper Minute Men flag represented a group of minutemen from Culpepper, VA.They formed part of Colonel Patrick Henry’s First Virginia Regiment of 1775. In October and November of 1775 three hundred such minutemen assembled at Culpepper Court House and marched toward Williamsburg. Their unusual dress alarmed the people as they marched through the country. The words “liberty or death” were in large white letters on the chests of their hunting shirts. They had bucks’ tails in their hats and tomahawks and scalping knives were hung in their belts.
