Replica of Great Amoskeag Flag
Members of the Manchester Historic Association are receiving advance notice for the re-imagining of an iconic moment in Manchester history.
On June 14 at 11:30, our friends from Brady Sullivan Properties are going to unveil a grand American flag that will rekindle memories of the 1914 image in which mill workers from Amoskeag Manufacturing gathered to pose before what become known as "The Great Flag." The photo of that event was captured by Harlan Marshall - later curator for the MHA - and the reimagining of that event is sure to draw crowds. The new flag will be draped over four stories of what is now known as The Lofts at Mill West on the city's West Side, and the photo opportunities are sure to be grand.
As one who appreciates Manchester history, we thought you might appreciate the advance notice as well! 
Brady Sullivan invites you to participate in this historic tribute by joining the Brady Sullivan team along with local historians & officials for a re-enactment of the photo above at 11:30 AM on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.
PLEASE NOTE that the flag will remain hanging on the highway side of the building from June 14-18 and we kindly ask you to utilize the front parking lot on McGregor St. during that time, to make way for public viewing.
