In June 1776, the Continental Congress appointed a five-man committee to draft a Declaration of Independence. The committee then chose Jefferson to author the declaration 's first draft. Over the next 17 days, Jefferson drafted one of the most beautiful and powerful testaments to liberty and equality in world history.

The American Revolution marked the history of many heroic events that immaculately stand as true inspirations for the generations to come in the United States. Even today, the gallantry of a few soldiers that won independence for the country is not only kept in the hearts of the people but run in the American blood to demonstrate acts of valor at times of war and hardships.

Never recognized as an official Civil War symbol, the Virginian Battle Flag, historically, holds a significant place in the
