Historical Societies

The ancient standard of the Three County Troop was described at a meeting of the New England Historic Genealogical Society in early 1871.

cf. Whitmore’s “The standard” (1871)

Some fifteen years later, an old flag was given to the Town of Bedford and mentioned at a meeting of the Massachusetts Historical Society in late 1885.

cf. Jenks’ “The Bedford Flag” (1885)

The next month, a member of the Massachusetts Historical Society conflated the latter flag with the former, commencing two decades of confusion.

cf. Appleton’s “The Bedford Flag” (1886)
