Jane Long Flag – 3 x 5 ft. Sewn Cotton Flag
Jane Long Flag
Size: 3 x 5 ft. Cotton Sewn Embroidered Flag
Flag Inspired by “the Mother of Texas”, Jane Long. In 1818, Dr. James Long, his bride Jane (née Wilkinson from Natchez, Mississippi) and 300 troops came to Texas to free the province from Spanish rule.
20-year-old Jane sewed a flag for her husband to take into battle; it was a white star on a red field, and the first recorded use of the “Lone Star” on any flag of the Republic.
Dr. Long led an expedition into and then successfully captured the town of Nacogdoches, declaring it the first capital of the Republic of Texas.
