Old Hickory And Maine Statehood

Today is the birthday of Andrew Jackson, 7th President of the United States and general during the Battle of New Orleans. It is also Statehood Day for the state of Maine, the 23rd state in the Union (formerly part of Massachusetts). For today, we raise the 24-star flag (used during Jackson's terms as President) and the 23-star flag along with the Maine flag for Maine's statehood.
