The Bennington flag, with reversed stripes, is named for a Revolutionary battle
near Bennington, Vt. Analysis of the original fabric suggests it dates from well after the Revolution.
Frank Tower, of Gig Harbor, held the Bennington flag during an anti-tax rally by area Tea Party groups and the Evergreen Freedom Foundation on the Capitol steps in Olympia, Wash.
