Saint Croix 1770-1776: The First Salute to the Stars and Stripes by Robert Johnson

Robert Amandus Johnson chronicled this period of the history of Saint Croix from 1770-1776 and the remarkable relationship of the Island to the emerging American Nation. It relates, what is believed to be, the first foreign recognition of the American Stars and Stripes. This occurred in Christiansted, St Croix in June 1776, prior to Congressional approval of the Declaration of Independence. This early Stars and Stripes was being flown from the American Brig Nancy. The American Revolutionary Financier, Robert Morris had chartered the Brig Nancy, on behalf of Congress, to acquire critically needed gunpowder in the Danish West Indies. Mr. Johnson resides in St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, his adopted home since first arriving as an Ensign in the U.S Navy in 1959.
