Saturday, July 13, 1918. "It was unfortunate that the weather Saturday was so threatening," The Saratogian reports, "It wouldn't have been a bad thing at all for a lot of Saratogians to have gone out to the north farm and seen the inspiring spectacle of the flag dedication."

The flag raising takes place at the Yaddo colony, where Katrina Trask has opened land to youth farmers for the U.
