Own a Piece of Texas History: The “Liberty or Death” Troutman Flag
The Troutman Flag was flown in 1836 during the Texas Revolution between Texas and Mexico. Sometimes referred to as the “First Lone Star Flag”, it bears the words “Liberty or Death” on a white background beneath a blue five-point star.
The flag is named after its designer and maker, Joanna Troutman, an 18-year-old woman from Georgia. She made the flag for the Georgia Battalion, a group of volunteers on their way to assist Texas in the fight for independence against Mexico. When the Georgians arrived in Velasco, now Freeport TX, on January 8, 1836, the flag was unfurled for the first time. It was then carried to Goliad, where Texas Colonel James Fannin raised it once again upon learning of the Texas Declaration of Independence.
