Eastern North America in 1775: The map shows part of the British Province of Quebec, the British thirteen colonies on the Atlantic coast, the interior Indian Reserve, and parts of New Spain. Some colonies claimed land further west, but only the areas shown in red were legally open to settlement by European-Americans, due to the Royal Proclamation of 1763). East Florida and West Florida had been acquired by Britain from Spain, and did not join the American Revolution the next year.
U.S. flag from 14 June 1777 to 1 May 1795 using a circular star pattern, known as the "Betsy Ross flag". Version of the "Betsy Ross" design of the first flag of the United States (i.e. with 13 stars in a circle), shown with shorter canton and modern 19:10 flag proportions. Apocryphal legend states it was created by Betsy Ross, though this is disputed. The stars all face outward and represent a new constellation. This flag was used from 14 June 1777 to 1 May 1795.
