The Nathan Hale Homestead is proud to honor those who have served our country each July with the annual Flag Field for Heroes event, which blankets the front lawn of the birthplace of Connecticut’s State Hero with dozens of American flags, each honoring a service member, veteran, or other hero. The moving display will be in place in front of the home that sent 6 sons to fight in the American Revolution from dawn to dusk July 6-July 27.

“Over the years I have watched this program emerge into an inspirational event displaying over 200 flags.  Our Flag Field for Heroes has flag honorees dating from the French Indian War to men and women serving today,” remarked Anne Marie Charland, Site Administrator for the Nathan Hale Homestead.

Patrons can sponsor an American flag on our website now. A free opening ceremony takes place July 6, featuring speakers and patriotic music.

Special thanks to our partners for this event, the Coventry Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Coventry American Legion.
