About this event

VetLinx Salute to Old Glory on Flag Day- Fort Negley, Nashville TN

This year marks the 244th anniversary of the adoption of the flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress. VetLinx will also celebrate the 246th U.S. Army Birthday on this day!

During the secession crisis in 1861, Captain William Driver’s famed Old Glory, now preserved by the Smithsonian Institute, waved defiantly above his Nashville residence. Following the invasion of the city by Federal troops in February 1862, Old Glory briefly donned the Tennessee State Capitol.

Historic Fort Negley Park is located at 1100 Fort Negley Boulevard just minutes from downtown Nashville. The park features the remains of the nation’s largest inland masonry fortification, interpretive panels, a visitors center, and ample green space for picnicking.

The event is free and open to the public.

Members of veterans related motorcycle groups wishing to participate in the flag raising ceremony should contact Laurel Bowman at 615-336-9969 in advance.

VetLinx is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and is a community partnership of major Fraternal Organizations, the VA, other Veteran-related service providers, and other citizens in the community with the passion to serve those who served.

Food will be provided after the ceremony. 

Hope to see everyone here!
