Other DetailsIn September 1775, the Americans launched two strong floating batteries on the Charles River, Massachusetts, and in the following month they opened fire on the enemy in Boston. In October, Washington also commissioned two schooners, the Lynch and the Franklin, to cruise the Bay. When speaking of these schooners, Col. Joseph Reed, Washington's secretary, in a letter from Cambridge, Mass. to Colonels Glover and Moyland, dated October 20, 1775, said
"Please fix upon some particular color for a flag, and a signal by which our vessels may know one another. What do you think of a flag with a white ground and a tree in the middle, the motto 'AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN' - this is the flag of our floating batteries."
