American Flag, アメリカの国旗

I just learned that my mother in law is the 6th generation from the person who invented the first American flag and one of the signers for the Decoration of Independence in 1776. His name is Francis Hopkinson. For his design, we was give a quarter cask of public wine (45-50 Litters of wine). You can read about him at, so this means I am in-law related to the designer of the first American Flag.

今年のインディペンデンスデイ、義母はなんと1776年アメリカ独立宣言にサインしたフランシス ホプキンソンからの6世代目だということを知りました。そして彼はアメリカの国旗を最初にデザインした人としても知られています。デザインでかれは45から50リットルのワインをもらったとされています。ということは私も血のつながりはないですが一応遠い遠い親戚?ということです。
